Kat, a Postdoctoral Fellow, is studying how the snow pack on mountains forms and melts and how that affects water supply. While working as an Environmental Engineer she realized she really wanted to be a science researcher and decided to go back to school. Her advice: take the time to choose something you're really interested in and don't be afraid to try different things until you find it.
Environmental engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems. They are involved in efforts to improve recycling, waste disposal, public health, and control of water and air pollution.
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. A graduate degree allows an engineer to work as an instructor at some colleges and universities or to do research and development.
