"Environmental health engineering, more commonly called environmental engineering, deals with measuring and minimizing human impact on the environment. Degrees in environmental engineering are offered at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels. Online options can also be found at undergraduate and master's level. Students complete hands-on research projects, along with classroom lectures and labs. These programs can lead to careers in water resource management, hazardous waste management, environmental consulting and more.
Prerequisites for environmental health engineering include a high school diploma or GED. Entry to graduate levels requires an undergraduate degree and possibly GRE scores. Practical experience may also be required in some cases."
