Environmental engineers provide safe drinking water, treat and properly dispose of wastes, maintain air quality, control water pollution and remediate sites contaminated due to spills or improper disposal of hazardous substances. They monitor the quality of the air, water and land. And, they develop new and improved ways to protect the environment.

Environmental engineers possess the scientific, mathematical and technical knowledge to identify, design, build, and operate systems that make modern society possible.

In addition, the environmental engineering field and environmental engineering education are multi-disciplinary. They involve traditional engineering components such as mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry and engineering design. But environmental engineering education and practice also involves a range of other disciplines such as biology, microbiology, ecology, public health, geology, meteorology, economics and political science.
