Engineer the environment and help save the world we live in
With the problems faced by the environment becoming more critical, environmental scientists and engineers are in very high demand.
Environmental engineering is where advances in science and technology are transformed into practical solutions that will protect and improve the quality of our environment. Environmental science examines how natural processes and their changes impact human society, and how human activities interact with and modify environments. By combining both, you’ll graduate with greater career prospects and a competitive edge in the job market.
