About

Find out more information about Environmental Engineering

Environmental engineering is concerned with the study of clean technologies that have no or as little impact on the environment as possible. An environmental engineer is involved in research and development of alternative energy sources, water reclamation, waste treatment and recycling. Environmental engineering also focuses on protecting public health, thus contributing to a sustainable development. Sub-disciplines of environmental engineering include: geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering. As a broad field of study, environmental engineering is related to other disciplines, as well, like: chemistry, biology, mathematics, technology, geography, public safety and economics.

Students who apply for a Bachelor’s degree or Master’s degree in environmental engineering should be able to evaluate the performance of an engineering system and incorporate innovations or develop new technologies to enhance environmental protection. Environmental engineering students will learn to collect, construct and evaluate environmental impact data, use logic and reasoning to identify the strengths and weaknesses of alternative solutions.

Graduates of an environmental engineering programme can find jobs in industries like: chemical industry, waste treatment, fuel production, energy, manufacturing or government departments and professional organisations. They can choose from the following career options: environmental engineer, air quality specialist, environmental scientist, environmental researcher, engineering technician, environmental sales engineer.
