Environmental Engineering includes the combination of science and engineering concepts to enhance the natural environment. Environmental engineers are charged with safeguarding the environment by examining the effect a project has on the air, water, soil and noise levels in its vicinity. This is done by studying the job’s design, building and operation, and reducing any negative impacts that it might have on the environment.
Environmental engineering includes waste water management and air pollution control, recycling, garbage disposal, radiation protection, industrial hygiene, environmental sustainability, and public health problems.
Environmental engineers are likewise involved in getting rid of issues caused by past tactics, such as cleaning contaminated industrial land so it can be utilized for housing. They anticipate what problems might be caused by mishaps, such as oil spills for instance, and evaluate what may trigger issues for the environment in the long term. They likewise prepare and design devices and processes for the treatment and safe disposal of waste material and direct the preservation and wise use of natural resources. They are associated with research and development of alternative energy sources, water reclamation, waste treatment and recycling.
Environmental engineers may deal with government departments or in the private sector with resource processing companies or act as consulting engineers, they may also move into geotechnical engineering.
