Go Green With Your Career

Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles used to improve our environment. These specialists work to provide us with drinkable water, clean air, and a clean habitat for humans and others. Specialists in this field of engineering are in demand. An environmental engineering degree will allow you to help our Mother Earth, and make a good living doing it.

With tens of billions of stimulus dollars aimed at investing in green technology, eco-friendly majors could prove lucrative long-term. Franek says, "Environmental sustainability. There are brand new majors around these things that pair, let's say, an old engineering major with a liberal arts major."

Many schools are also expanding their course requirements as a result of the changing environment. Franek says, "Great colleges are engaging those students not only inside the classroom but outside the classroom as well through experiential learning programs, internship programs, learning communities."

With an online environmental engineering degree, you will learn to conduct hazardous-waste management studies, to evaluate the significance of such hazards, advise on treatment and containment, and ultimately develop regulations to prevent mishaps.
