BSENE Environmental Engineering
What do environmental engineers do?
- Identify and design solutions for problems involving the environment.
- Provide safe drinking water, treat and properly dispose of wastes, maintain air quality, control water pollution, and remediate sites contaminated due to spills or improper disposal of hazardous substances.
- Monitor the quality of the air, water, and land, and develop new and improved means to protect the environment.
- Possess the scientific and technical knowledge to identify, design, build, and operate systems that make modern society possible.
- Many people are concerned about the state of our environment. Environmental engineers actually work to protect it from damage and to correct existing problems.
- Environmental engineering is a multi-disciplinary field, which involves:
- traditional engineering components such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, and engineering design.
- other disciplines, such as biology, microbiology, ecology, public health, geology, meteorology, economics, political science, and computer science.
- Environmental engineers have to be broadly educated and technically trained to address the spectrum of issues facing the environment.
