With the world’s population set to reach nine billion in 2050, obtaining enough clean water, air, land and food becomes even more pressing. It is to environmental engineers that we turn for solutions.
Environmental engineers optimise the use of natural resources, help develop renewable energy sources and maximise the use of materials.
We have strong links with industry. This includes industrial manufacturing companies both large, such as Tata Steel, to small, such as Tubex, the alternative energy sector, companies in water treatment, and local authorities in the areas of recycling and waste treatment.
Our Environmental Engineering degrees equip graduates to be 21st century engineers prepared to meet the environmental challenges of industry and society. The demand for environmental engineering graduates remains high with excellent starting salaries offered to graduates.
My future plan is to follow a career in renewable energy and become a Chartered Engineer. Studying at the College of Engineering has helped by giving me lots of career advice.

The course is very much based on practice and designed with a career path in environmental management in mind.
