Environmental engineering training offers you opportunities to work in any aspect of environmental protection. The major areas include air pollution control, industrial hygiene, radiation protection, hazardous waste management, toxic materials control, water supply, wastewater management, storm water management, solid waste disposal, public health, and land management. Engineering programs offer both master’s degrees and PhD’s. US News and World Reports offers rankings of environmental engineering programs. But in investigating programs, you should always go beyond the rankings and consider whether the program has the focus you want, along with placement rates and cost.
Students interested in civil or environmental engineering should contact Marty Baylor in the Physic department for advice on what coursework is required for these graduate programs.
