What is Environmental Engineering?

Environmental engineering uses the principles of engineering, soil science, biology and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems. The practice ensures the survival of human and the well being of all living things by providing clean water, air and land. Environmental engineering is a multidimensional mission with a focus on the improvement of our natural environment through tasks such as air pollution control, water pollution reduction, potable water supply development and design, remediation of contaminated sites, storm water control, solid waste disposal and control, hazardous waste management and environmental impact of construction activities.
