As our populations grow, we need to produce new things smarter, safer and cleaner whilst protecting our natural resources. Through your commitment to a more sustainable future, you will work towards managing and reducing waste to minimise pollution. As an environmental engineer, you will be passionate about protecting, restoring and preserving the planet. Environmental engineers design processes and products that minimise impacts on air, land and water, whilst making the most of finite natural resources. Environmental engineers work within the following areas:
- Disposal of waste
- Environmental compliance – reducing the impact of spills and emissions
- Flooding and drainage
- Infrastructure and development
- Management of pollutants
- Recovery of damaged land (damaged through; mining, farming or landfill)
- Water supply and sanitation
In year one and two, students develop knowledge of the engineering fundamentals, science and design. Following a successful placement application, you will spend a year working in industry at the end of year two. In year four, in addition to advanced modules, you will undertake an industry-focused group design project, which simulates a commercial environment and will allow you to develop and demonstrate valuable skills for your future career as a professional environmental engineer.
