There is not enough detail information regarding your background and training. Environmental Engineering involves process design of treatment plants and procedures. It also includes monitoring and testing of effluents, and discharges into the air and water. The licensing to practice professionally is often as a civil engineer.
Most architectural applications are directed towards Green practices in building design, development or construction and minimal process applications.
Since most managers in public and private environmental practice are often licensed as civil engineers, you may wish to consider a master's in environmental engineering.
