    Overview

    As an environmental engineer, your job is to build sustainable solutions to environmental problems.

    In this major, you’ll learn about the complexities of natural systems and how they interact with the built environment by examining land use and management, pollution, water resources management, water quality and soil rehabilitation.

    Work alongside biologists, ecologists and resource managers to create a better, more efficient and more sustainable world.

    For professional accreditation as an environmental engineer, follow this major with a Master of Engineering (Environmental).

    If you continue this major through to the Master of Engineering (Environmental), you will be eligible for professional accreditation as an engineer as our Engineering degrees are professionally recognised under two major accreditation frameworks — EUR-ACE® and the Washington Accord (through Engineers Australia). Graduates can work as chartered professional engineers throughout Europe, and as professional engineers in the 17 countries of the Washington Accord.
