Scope Of Environment Engineering

When we say the environment it’s just a word at that time but in real environment is not just a word environment, encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally on Earth or some region thereof. It is an environment that encompasses the interaction of all living species. The concept of the natural environment can be distinguished by components:

Complete ecological units that function as natural systems without massive human intervention, including all vegetation, microorganisms, soil, rocks, atmosphere and natural phenomena that occur within their boundaries.

Universal natural resources and physical phenomena that lack clear-cut boundaries, such as air, water, and climate, as well as energy, radiation, electric charge, and magnetism, not originating from human activity.

The natural environment is contrasted with the built environment, which comprises the areas and components that are strongly influenced by humans. A geographical area is regarded as a natural environment (with an indefinite article), if the human impact on it is kept under a certain limited level

Ecosystems are essential to facing challenges of building sustainable communities, economies and technologies. Technological innovation based on lessons from nature can bring new efficiencies. Economic deficits we borrow from each other, but ecological deficits we take from future generations. Environmental science is the study of how the environment interacts biologically, chemically and physically. This interdisciplinary examination of ecosystems covers topics such as biodiversity, groundwater contamination, conservation, climate change, soil contamination, waste management, air pollution, water quality and sustainable management.

Environmental science is the study of biological, chemical and physical parts of the environment interacting together. It gives a quantitative and interdisciplinary approach to examining ecosystems and covers issues such as conservation, biodiversity, soil contamination, groundwater contamination, climate change, the quality of water, waste management, sustainable development and resources, air pollution, noise pollution and the destructive use of natural resources. Studies involve research, creative problem solving, activism and responsible citizenship.

Scope Of Environmental Engineering :

The job market for environmental science majors is increasing, especially in the private sector as public policy demands and new regulations force corporations and consulting firms to comply with environmental laws. Employment for environmental scientists is expected to grow by 25 percent within the next ten years, making it one of the fastest growing jobs available. The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that the average salary is $61,100. Whereas in india limitless job opportunities are provided by Environmental Science & engineering. Engineers can be recruited in Central and State pollution control boards. Engineers with a B.E degree receives a salary anywhere between Rs.15,000 – Rs.30,000. Candidates with a postgraduate degree may start with a decent salary range of Rs. 35000 – Rs. 50000 and with a Ph.D it becomes Rs. 50000 – Rs. 75000. A licensed engineer can expect a salary of Rs. 1 lakh per month.

Eligibility and courses :

An individual aspiring for a career in environmental engineering can join BE/B.Tech program after his/her Plus Two Science with Physics, Chemistry, Maths. The BE/BTech program is of four years duration. Admission to B.Tech program is made generally through entrance tests.
