Environmental Engineers assess the impact on air, water, soil and noise levels in the vicinity of engineering projects, plan and design equipment and processes for the treatment and safe disposal of waste material, and assess what may cause problems for the environment in the long-term.
You need a bachelor degree in engineering majoring in environmental engineering to work as an Environmental Engineer. It is also common to complete postgraduate studies.
Registration may be required in some states and territories. In addition, Engineers Australia has a non-compulsory National Engineering Register.
