Environmental engineer

Environmental engineers use engineering skills to address environmental problems, such as water and air pollution, waste disposal and recycling, as well as public health issues.

As an environmental engineer, your work could include:

  • Designing municipal water supply and industrial waste water treatment systems;
  • Carrying out environmental impact assessments;
  • Contributing to debates on regulations around global warming, acid rain, etc.

Your work would help ensure that buildings respect environmental regulations and contribute to maintaining high environmental standards.
