Missouri University of Science and Technology
Think green! Environmental engineers are trained to develop new methods to solve problems that exist either in the environment or in an engineered system. They protect the environment by examining water and wastewater treatment, air pollution control and treatment, solid waste management and hazardous waste site remediation.
Your service to the world, its development and improvement are fundamental aspects of an environmental engineering career. Environmental engineers are problem solvers… applying the latest in high-tech equipment and sophisticated procedures to address complex challenges facing our environment.
Where do environmental engineers work?
Environmental engineers consult on wastewater, pollution and hazardous waste cleanup or might work for the EPA, state departments of natural resources, as city planners, municipal engineers or manufacturing, mining and oil drilling specialists. A degree in environmental engineering is also a great preparation for graduate school.
Missouri S&T's Environmental Engineering program has been ABET accredited since 2005.
Environmental engineers are in demand. An estimated $200 billion is spent annually to support 2.5 million working professionals.
Job growth in EnvEng is expected to be tremendous in the next 30 years.
S&T has its own greenhouse – and many students pursue undergrad research projects in the department.
Over the past 5 years, 100% of our EnvEng grads have full-time jobs within 3 months of graduation.
Average starting salary for S&T EnvEng grads: $53,809.
