At a glance
Environmental engineers design solutions that prevent future pollution as well as correct existing pollution problems. In the major, you’ll gain a foundation in natural sciences, mathematics, biological sciences, and engineering fundamentals, and progress to engineering applications in air, water, land pollution, and environmental toxicology. Opportunities to focus in areas such as agricultural and environmental measurements, rate-controlled separations, basic hydrology, environmental law, and environmental ethics mean you’ll be even more prepared to enter the workforce after graduation.
Some Career Options
With the increasing awareness and concern for the environment, comes an increased demand for the services of environmental engineers, both in the U.S. and abroad. Environmental engineers are employed in designing pollution prevention equipment and systems, designing environmental monitoring systems, implementing both government and industry environmental regulations, designing water and wastewater treatment systems, and restoring ecosystem health. Your degree will prepare you well for entry-level positions with regulatory agencies, engineering consulting firms, and environmental divisions of large corporations, particularly in the energy and manufacturing industries.
