Our environmental engineering students are prepared to face the interdisciplinary challenges of today. We invite students and alumni to access our wealth of career resources, and welcome employers to keep in touch with our talented student base.

Environmental engineering and related fields such as hydrology have recently been recognized as fast-growing career fields. Publications from USNews and CareerCast rank environmental engineering among the top engineering careers. This rising popularity is due to rapid job growth, salary potential, education level, and room for innovation.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics' Occupational Outlook Handbook states that environmental engineering set to grow at 8.4%  from 2016-2026, near the 7% average growth rate for all jobs. The median salary for environmental engineers is $86,800 per year, with top states for employment California, New York, and Pennsylvania. Currently, according to the 2018 edition, "most of the projected employment growth for environmental engineers is in professional, scientific, and technical services, as governments at the state and local levels draw on the industry to help address water efficiency concerns."

Our environmental engineering students not only succeed as environmental engineers, but have a solid and broad foundation to excel in government, technology, and other fields.
