Environmental Engineer Jobs

Environmental engineers develop solutions to environmental problems using the principles of biology and chemistry. Environmental engineer jobs are involved in water and air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal and public health issues.

Environmental engineers conduct hazardous-waste management studies in which they evaluate the significance of the hazard, advise on treatment and containment and develop regulations to prevent mishaps. Environmental engineer jobs design municipal water supply and industrial wastewater treatment systems. Environmental engineer jobs conduct research on the environmental impact of proposed construction projects, analyse scientific data, and perform quality-control checks.


Environmental engineers typically do the following:

  • Prepare, review, and update environmental investigation reports
  • Design projects leading to environmental protection, such as water reclamation facilities, air pollution control systems, and operations that convert waste to energy
  • Obtain, update, and maintain plans, permits, and standard operating procedures
  • Provide technical support for environmental remediation projects and for legal actions
  • Analyze scientific data and do quality-control checks
  • Monitor the progress of environmental improvement programs
  • Inspect industrial and municipal facilities and programs to ensure compliance with environmental regulations
  • Advise corporations and government agencies about procedures for cleaning up contaminated sites

Environmental engineers are concerned with local and worldwide environmental issues. They study and attempt to minimise the effects of acid rain, global warming, automobile emissions and ozone depletion. They may also be involved in the protection of wildlife. Many environmental engineer jobs work as consultants, helping their clients to comply with regulations and to clean up hazardous sites.
