About this course

  • Environmental engineering involves the planning, design and management of the natural environment. Environmental engineers require an understanding of the complexity and variability of natural systems, and the way these interact with the built environment. They focus on land and water engineering, examining issues such as land use and management, salinity, water resources management, water quality and soil rehabilitation, and create sustainable solutions to environmental challenges.
  • Environmental engineers regularly work with biologists, ecologists and resource managers in order to solve problems related to ecologically sustainable development.


  • The need for qualified environmental engineers has never been greater. New kinds of jobs are being developed in environmental areas such as bushfire protection, carbon management, climate change and sustainable systems. Career opportunities exist in consulting firms, conservation and natural resource management agencies, environmental protection agencies, catchment management authorities, local, state and federal government and mining companies.
  • Environmental engineering graduates may find work with companies such as GHD, Golder Associates or Alluvium.
