Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles and techniques to improve the natural environment including air, water, and land resources. The scope extends to waste water management, remediation of polluted sites, air pollution control, water and material recycling, waste disposal, environmental impact assessment, radiation protection, industrial hygiene, and environment sustainability. All environmental-friendly technologies can be said to fall within the purview of environmental engineers.
