Overview

According to Fortune magazine, one of the hottest career paths for the next ten years is expected to be in environmental engineering. As part of this increase, the U.S. will begin exporting environmental expertise to overseas markets to sustain this job growth. Environmental engineers will be called upon to develop creative solutions to balance economic growth and ecosystem preservation as coastal and inland development accelerates. The article, "Hot Careers for the Next 10 years" puts the growth rate of demand for environmental engineers (at 54%) even higher than that of information systems managers, software engineers, and systems analysts. Environmental engineers will be expected to prevent problems and introduce new technologies that promote sustainable development as global expansion takes off in the Pacific Rim and elsewhere.
