Environmental engineers work to prevent, control or remediate any hazards to the environment using their engineering expertise. Their work might focus on topics like waste disposal, erosion, and water and air pollution.
Those who take the environmental engineering route can expect work in the classroom, laboratory and out in the field. Additionally, after working a few years in the field, many environmental engineers choose to get licensed as a professional engineer by graduating.
Research: After Master’s Program students can further enrolled for Ph.D. and develop their research skills.
Environmental Consultant: Employment opportunities can be found in private consulting engineering firms, universities, private research firms, testing laboratories, government agencies (central, state and local), or all types of major corporations and private businesses.
Public and Private Sector: Apart from jobs in government agencies like the Central Pollution Control Board, the private sector openings would be with companies that are engaged in infrastructure projects with environmental consulting firms.
