Environmental Engineering

Earning a Bachelor of Science degree signifies that you have completed a designated curriculum and achieved a certain level of knowledge in your chosen subject area. This may precede your search for a job, or you might continue seeking education in the field in the form of graduate study.

What is a BSc in Environmental Engineering? This degree prepares students to work in engineering positions that involve natural resources. Coursework will typically cover both environmental topics and engineering topics. You might encounter classes such as filtration systems, chemical processing for wastewater, environmental measurements, and air quality technology. Some programs also offer internships that students may receive credit for.

The knowledge you will gain in these classes is not just applicable to environmental engineering. Understanding principles of nature and concepts of engineering may prove useful in many other pursuits — and you might hone your scientific and analytical skills, too.

You may be wondering what this program will cost. Expenses for a BSc in Environmental Engineering vary, but you can find out more from the admissions personnel at one of your prospective institutions.

Of course, if you earn a BSc in Environmental Engineering, you may expect to become an environmental engineer. While this is an obvious career choice, there are plenty of other opportunities that may be equally appealing. You could use your engineering expertise in another field of the sector, or you could apply your scientific knowledge in a laboratory workplace. Positions such as engineering technician, environmental consultant or urban planner may also be a good fit for your expertise.

Before you can jump into the job market, though, you need to earn the degree — and before you do that, you need to find the school that is right for you. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
