    Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to improve the natural environment (air, water, and/or land resources), to provide healthy water, air, and land for human habitation, plants, animals, etc. They often tackle remediation of polluted sites. It involves waste water management and air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, radiation protection, industrial hygiene, environmental sustainability, and public health issues as well as a knowledge of environmental engineering law. They are often used to produce environmental impact studies and reports on proposed construction projects.

    Environmental engineering actually gets involved in all of the engineering fields in one way or another.

    There are mechanical, chemical, civil, and electrical engineers that work on nothing but projects dealing with the environment such as hazardous waste incineration plants, cleanup of old mining sites and etc.

    Environmental engineering seems to also involve a lot of paperwork (lots of rules and regs to comply with).
