Preparing for a Career in Environmental Engineering

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. You can make a direct impact on your community by designing a municipal water supply system, helping to protect local wildlife, or you can tackle large-scale issues like climate change, ozone depletion, or automobile emissions.

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.

What to Expect as an Environmental Engineer
Believe it or not, you can help save the planet while earning a very decent living. The mean yearly salary for environmental engineers in the United States was $77,970 in May 2008, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Employment should increase by 25 percent between 2006 and 2016, which makes environmental engineering the fastest-growing engineering profession today.
