What is Environmental Engineering?

Environmental Engineering is the study of engineering to overcome environmental issues.

Do you love the environment and hope to make a difference someday, even when your friends litter around? Have you ever thought that our country will be more eco-friendly one day? Or are you an activist at heart wanting to educate people on environmental conservation? Now’s your time to make an impact. Continue reading as we dig into what this course encompasses.

Environmental engineering is one of the most fulfilling paths to take if you enjoy engineering. Not only you get to enjoy doing what you love, you also get to save the environment, overcome environmental issues AND get paid! This course very much relates to civil engineering as the environmental issues usually fall under civil engineering. You’ll be utilising your expertise as an engineer using principles of soil science, biology and chemistry to come up with solutions to overcome environmental problems. Water treatments, solid waste management, industrial waste management and management of natural resources are just the tip of the ice-berg when addressing environmental problems. Malaysia needs engineers with the expertise and skills to work out solutions to fix these problems and reduce the negative environmental impacts and improve the quality of life for everyone.

How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Environmental Engineering course?

Want to Make a Change

You have the desire to see the world as a more eco-friendly environment to improve the quality of live for people, animals and nature. You’re sick of people just talking about how they wish this world would be a better place where the air would be clean and sea would be crystal clear. You’re tired of hearing people pass away at an early age due to illness caused by pollution or natural disasters.

Ability to analyse and solve problems

Are you always inquisitive, wanting to find out what is the root cause of the problem instead of covering it up with a temporary solution? Even if someone were to give you an answer, you know that the real reason is something much more than that. You’re not satisfied until you get the right answer. Well, to be an environmental engineer, you’ll need to possess this skill so you can identify the environmental issue and get right to solving it.

Love the outdoors

Are you and nature one? Do you like the smell of soil even on a sunny day? Well, then studying this course would be a breeze for you. Working outdoors would be the most exciting part of your job.
