When in comes to protecting the environment, few professions offer as many opportunities to make a difference as engineering.

Engineers strive to develop the best solutions possible with available resources and within the limits of the environment. Today they are creating better packaging to reduce waste; more fuel-efficient engines to reduce emissions; more effective water treatments to ensure clean water for people, plants, and animals.

As the world population grows, climate changes, and nonrenewable resources dwindle, we will face big challenges that will demand creative solutions. Engineers will provide them.
