Good things take time

Environmental Engineering is a branch of engineering which deals in protecting the environment by reducing waste and pollution. Engineers who are associated with this branch are known as environmental engineers. Those engineers design, plan and implement measure for preventing, control, also work on pollution control, wastewater treatment. 

According to the previous analysis conducted, nearly 28% of environmental engineers are working in architectural, engineering, and related services. About 21% are engaged in scientific and technical work. And also some people work in local, federal and state governments.

Yes, environmental engineers are in demand these days, but it depends on your working qualities. Environmental engineers must possess imagination, interpersonal skills, problem-solving skills, reading skills, and writing skills. They are accepted worldwide in every field related to their study. The jobs include:

Jobs after a Bachelor's degree
Here is a list of all the profitable job profiles one can opt for after completing environmental engineering.

  • Calibrating the types of equipment/instruments in the laboratory before conducting the experiments.
  • Advising fellow workers on related issues and guiding them.
  • Introducing new remedies for contamination and site clean-up.
  • Analyzing the data collected and making necessary reports.
  • Communicating with technical and non-technical stakeholders.
  • Introducing pollution controlling waste management techniques.
  • Preparing reviews and updating the reports.

The field is further expected to grow nearly 15%. If you have done masters in any of the environmental related fields, there will be more scope of working. After pursuing MS, you can go for the following jobs: 

Jobs after seeking MS

  • Water project manager, water is the primary source for all living things working in this field and is highly in demand these days.
  • Senior environmental engineer, work is to guide junior ecological engineers and the members working take up significant projects and make reports on them.
  • Environmental health and safety director works by explaining the health conditions of people due to the environment.
  • Working as an environmental engineering consultant is another demanded work, generally, a bachelor’s degree is enough for this, but some companies look for higher degree candidates.

The Green building is constructing/protecting the environment (green) with new techniques. Green building engineers work includes building specifications and materials required, designing, working in forensic, etc.;

Many companies are looking for the best environmental engineers. Environmental engineers not only have opportunities in India but also in foreign countries. An excellent salary can also be expected. Environmental Engineers and their respected fields are recognized and accredited by The American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists (AAEES), The National Society of Professional Engineers and The Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP).

Therefore many opportunities are waiting for environmental engineers. Demand for environmental engineers is also growing day by day due to the pollution problems which are raising nowadays.
