Environmental engineering specialists use principles of biology and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems. These workers are involved in matters such as recycling, waste disposal, water and air pollution control, and public health issues. Environmental engineers also research and try to minimize the effects of acid rain, global warming, automobile emissions, and ozone depletion issues. In addition, these professionals are involved in protecting wildlife. Any entry level position in this field requires a bachelors of Science degree in environmental engineering. However, many employers prefer you to have a master’s degree in this field.
