Environmental Engineering

Environmental Engineering

Environmental engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to problems in the environment.

Some of the duties environmental engineers do are:

  • Design projects that lead to environmental protection, like water reclamation facilities or air pollution control systemshttps://www.turtlediary.com/game/grow-a-plant.html
  • Provide technical support for environmental corrective projects and for legal actions
  • Analyze scientific data and quality-control checks
  • Check on the progress of environmental improvement programs
  • Inspect industrial and municipal facilities and programs making sure all environmental regulations are being followed.

To become an environmental engineer, you need a college degree. It is important that the university programs are accredited by an organization called ABET https://www.abet.org/. Unfortunately the colleges in North Dakota do not environmental engineering programs that are accredited by ABET, however, you can search on the ABET website (https://www.abet.org/) for colleges/universities that have accredited programs.
