what is Environmental engineering about help ASAP? or Chemical engineering?
ok so basically if it helps, im either an ENTP or an ENFP
I thought im intrested in Environmental engineeirng. But is it really all water and waste water treatment? Because if it is, it sounds disgusting.
1- What do you guys do? Dive in and take a sample?
I really do not mean to be rude but I'm lost between majors right now and would love to know the details of an environmental engineer.
2- What is covered in the program. I know its protecting air, water and soil. But how? Through what?
3- Im mostly intrested in creating a sustainable world, how does this fit in? Is it related? If not, then what's the most sustainable career you know?
4- Do you take energy classes? How to use waste in order to make energy out of it?
5- What's a normal day for you like?
Thank you soo much for your time! I know its a lot of question but i do not have many days left and would appreciate an answer ASAP (:
I would also like to ask, as an extra. Chemical Engineering or Environmental Engineering?
Is it true chemical engieners spend all day in a lab?

Years ago you have to have a degree in Chemical Engineering to become a top person in environmental engineering at a plant.
There was no such thing as an environmental engineering degree.
You never touch waste water - you are just in charge of meeting state compliance and environmental standards.
You have poeple with GED's that do any dirty work.
The government publishes a gray book - forgot the name - that covers all environmental regulations that must be followed by every company - this will become your bible.
ChemE's do not spend all day on a lab.
They go on to be production managers and plant manangers.
Chemical engineers is currently one of the highest paying 4 year degrees.
The degree is highly in demand - take it if you think you can pass it.
If not Environmental engineers can easily make just a bit under of what ChemE's make.
Both are rewarding careers that will get you respect.
Remember - there is no dumpster diving - not when you are making 75K a year to start.
You'll have people that will jump when you say jump.
