Threats to our environment rank among the most serious problems we face today. If your dream is to become part of the solution, environmental engineering could be the career for you.

How to Prepare for an Environmental Engineering Career
Aspiring environmental engineers typically hold a bachelor's degree in environmental engineering or a related field. Engineers with college degrees in engineering might consider obtaining advanced career training in environmental engineering. Many environmental engineers continue their education either through online schools that offer engineering degrees or on campus through a program with ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) accreditation.
