Environmental Topics

Environmental engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems. They work to improve recycling, waste disposal, public health, and water and air pollution control. Environmental engineers may be called upon to conduct hazardous-waste management studies in which they evaluate the significance of a hazard and advise on containing it. They also design systems for municipal and industrial water supplies and industrial wastewater treatment, and research the environmental impact of proposed construction projects.

Some environmental engineers study ways to minimize the effects of acid rain, climate change, automobile emissions, and ozone depletion. They also collaborate with environmental scientists, urban and regional planners, hazardous-waste technicians, and other engineers, as well as with specialists such as experts in law and business, to address environmental problems and environmental sustainability.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is one of the principal agencies that work with environmental engineers to protect and improve air, water, and overall environmental quality. Keeping communities safe and healthy requires action to reduce risks associated with exposure to chemicals in industry and the environment, such as controlling the introduction and use of new pesticides in agricultural production.

The EPA reduces radon risks, identifies health risks in schools and homes, and aims to improve chemical management practices. Oversight of chemical storage and manufacturing is a principal focus of attention, as well as efforts to combat air toxins. The Environmental Protection Agency also tracks hazardous waste sites, and protects public lands from contaminants that may leach into the soil from industrial manufacturing operations.

History of the Earth and Life

This is a huge documentary, portraying the birth of the Earth, and the emergence and evolution of all life on Earth, depicted through latest research activities.

One Planet | FULL

Experience our planet's natural beauty and examine how climate change impacts all living creatures in this ambitious documentary. Witness the planet's breathtaking diversity, from seabirds carpet-bombing the ocean to wildebeests eluding the wild dogs of the Serengeti.

Mountains - National Geographic

The highest mountains on Earth are home to snow leopards, golden eagles, mountain goats, barnacle goslings and gelada monkeys. But only the toughest can endure the extreme weather, scarce food and limited oxygen on these peaks.


About 1,500 active volcanoes can be found around the world. Learn about the major types of volcanoes, the geological process behind eruptions, and where the most destructive volcanic eruption ever witnessed occurred.

Mining Engineering

mineral engineeringMining and geological engineers design mines to safely and efficiently remove minerals such as coal and metals for use in manufacturing and utilities. Geological engineers in particluar are charged with searching for mineral deposits through satellite data and ground sonar, and then evaluating potential digging sites. Once a site is identified, they plan how the metals or minerals will be extracted in an efficient and environmentally sound way. Mineral engineers may drill core samples and conduct surface surveys, searching for specific compounds and ores.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a geophysical method that has been developed for shallow, high-resolution, subsurface investigations of the earth. GPR uses high frequency pulsed electromagnetic waves to acquire subsurface information. Magnetic devices specifically developed for environmental applications may be used to locate subsurface iron, nickel and cobalt alloys which are typically referred to as ferrous materials. The technology has been widely used for quickly locating buried or subsurface ferrous objects that could pose a potential threat to the environment or hinder reclamation efforts.

Hard minerals such as limestone, sand, gravel, and slate are generally quarried into a series of benches. Strip mining, on the other hand, is more appropriate for softer minerals such as clays and phosphate. In-situ mining can be done from the surface using dissolving agents, retrieving the ore via pumps. Finally, explosives may be called for to clear out rock layers, and hydraulic jets may be utilized to wash away the overburden or to clear out the ore itself.

Environmental Engineering

Environmental engineers must have a bachelor's degree in environmental engineering or a related field, such as urban planning, organic chemistry, or industrial engineering. Programs in environmental engineering technology generally include courses in mathematics, chemistry, hazardous-waste management, and environmental assessment. At some colleges and universities, a student can enroll in a 5-year program that leads to both a bachelor's and a master's degree concurrently. Engineering programs are accredited by ABET.

Because environmental engineers help out in environmental cleanup, they must follow proper safety procedures, such as wearing hazmat suits and sometimes respirators. Some environmental technician positions require training on working with hazardous materials in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards.

A Professional Engineering (PE) license, which allows for higher levels of leadership and independence, can be acquired later in one's career. Licensed engineers are called professional engineers (PEs). A PE can oversee the work of other engineers, sign off on projects, and provide services directly to the public. State licensure generally requires:

  • A degree from an ABET-accredited engineering program.
  • A passing score on the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam.
  • Relevant work experience, typically at least 4 years.
  • A passing score on the Professional Engineering (PE) exam..

The initial FE exam can be taken after earning a bachelor's degree. Engineers who pass this exam are commonly called engineers in training (EITs) or engineer interns (EIs). After meeting work experience requirements, EITs and EIs can take the second exam, called the Principles and Practice of Engineering. After licensing, environmental engineers can earn board certification from the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists.
