    As with any engineering you will need to have a solid math foundation. Environmental Engineering at my University has three maths units that need to be completed. There is also a lot of maths used within the other units.

    You don't really need to know a lot about anything before you start though. That is the purpose of the degree. To learn.

    Some of the other units in Environmental Engineering include:

    Engineering problem solving

    Hydraulics

    Stress Analysis

    Hydrology

    Irrigation

    Soil Science

    Geology

    Environmental Technology

    Spatial Science

    And many many more... As I said before though, you will struggle with any field of engineering if your math skills aren't very good.

    Good luck with your studies!
