Environmental Engineering is a distinct discipline of engineering that integrates knowledge and tools from multiple disciplines to manage the impact of humans on the environment. Environmental engineers focus on protecting and improving air, water, and land natural resources. They also manage the various residuals from industrial processes through treatment, recycling, reuse, and safe disposal. From designing drinking water treatment plants to working with transportation planners on reducing air pollution to controlling run-off from urban areas, environmental engineers design, manage, and operate systems that reduce the impact of society on the environment and improve human health and quality of life.
