Environmental engineers may work in the field and/or in an office. They can design, evaluate, or manage control systems for erosion and water as well as waste processing facilities. They often work for the government and inspect facilities for compliance with environmental laws. They also monitor for pollution by testing air and water quality and coming up with model projections. In some cases they may work on animal housing and care. For example, they make work to ensure that waste from a large project like a turkey farm will not harm the local wildlife and environment. They may even be called in as expert witnesses in court cases involving pollution or other violations of environmental laws.
Environmental engineers are generally required to hold at least a bachelor's degree in environmental engineering or a related field. The need for environmental engineers is great and will continue to grow as we become more aware of the needs of our planet and our reliance on our environment for survival.
