Environmental Engineering

Environmental Engineering

helps make the air, waters, and land better and safer for humans. Work includes designing, building, and operating systems to manage wastewater, cut air pollution, improve solid-waste disposal, and make recycling more cost-effective. Engineers also find ways to reduce emissions from vehicles and power plants, and clean up toxic-waste sites. Efforts are guided by environmental law, regulators, and public health concerns, spelled out in environmental-impact statements.
