Environmental Engineering FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right environmental engineer for your job

1. What is environmental engineering?

There are two key priorities for environmental engineers:

  • Firstly, environmental engineers focus on mitigating the harmful effects of environmental issues, such as air pollution or chemical pesticide toxicity.
  • Secondly, environmental engineers improve environmental quality using innovative solutions that rely on both technology and proven principles.

One expertise of environmental engineers is soil science. Soils across the world, especially in Australia, are being nutritionally depleted and eroded due to a combination of poor environmental or construction development processes and changing weather patterns. Environmental engineers can help site supervisors employ proven practices to restore the soil’s health, strength and pH.


2. What do environmental engineers do?

Environmental engineering is a broad area of expertise, so some environmental engineers can specialise in multiple areas. Some areas that environmental engineering companies focus on include water engineering, sustainability engineering or transport engineering.

Environmental engineers are like investigators and problem solvers all in one. One of their main functions is to stop the release of chemical and biological contaminants. They use a practical and educational background in chemistry and biology, along with an understanding of industrial and agricultural processes that are involved in the contamination. They also help to redesign, modify or completely transform the processes that are the culprit of this contamination.

These engineers track the presence of pollutants back to their source. This could be the contamination of a lake, acres of land or ocean. Once the source is identified, they’ll create a plan to stop or reduce the harmful effects. This might mean working with businesses to determine an environmental management plan.


3. What are the different types of environmental engineering?

The applications for environmental engineering services are vast right now.

Some different types of environmental engineering include:

  • Water engineering — Rainfall and storm prediction modelling, water supply for drinking water, agricultural irrigation, wastewater treatment, groundwater, recycling water, desalinated water projects, flood prediction and management solutions, and coastal management with civil infrastructure planning
  • Sustainable engineering — Tracking interactions between technical, ecological, social, and economic systems to design living systems that benefit the planet’s natural processes
  • Transport engineering — Planning, designing and operating large-scale transportation systems, such as expansion of a rail system, changing from petroleum to electric power, materials for use in pavements, tolls and optimising traffic signals

4. How much do environmental engineers make per year?

Environmental engineers go through rigorous training during their academic careers. So it’s no surprise that they command a high starting salary. The average annual salary for environmental engineers in Australia is around $72,267 per year.


5. Where are iSeekplant’s environmental engineers located?
