    Hey Shaurya. Yes, it's usually pretty easy to change majors within engineering (Mech E to Env E), especially if you're still a freshman or sophomore - since most of the coursework is the same for those first years. You'll have to check w/ your adviser ...

    Hi Molly, I graduated with a BS in Biology and have been working for a couple years at an energy efficiency consulting firm. I've been thinking about going back to school to get an environmental or civil engineering masters, because problem solving is something that I love. Do you have some suggestions for next steps? Thanks!

    Hi Lauren, 
    Thanks for writing. It's great that you've gotten some experience and have some good footing to make your next career move. I started as a Bio major as well, and then transferred into env engineering. I'd say school-wise, the difference was ...

    I'm not sure why your friends are discouraging you! But, regardless of the reason, it's YOUR career, and not theirs, so you should make the decision for yourself. Of course it's good to get input from people who are knowledgeable - for ...

    Hi, going green and be environmentally conscious has always been my thing. I figured why not take it up a notch and pursue a career in environmental engineering. My question is, how are the courses I'm going to have to take in order to become an environmental engineer? How is the gender distribution of the class and vigorousness of the courses?

    I am currently pursuing an engineering degree in electronics and communication; however I was never really interested in mathematics and computers. I have been a bright student throughout and scored good grades irrespective of the subjects. But now the idea of studying something which I might not seek a career in makes me lose interest and is affecting my grades. I am a second year student. I did not know about this vast application of computing and particularly programming languages applied in ...

    Swati, You are in an excellent position to be wondering the things you are wondering right now. Thanks for writing. Ironically, I was in a very similar position when I was a student - initially studied biology... and then found myself in Engineering, ...

    Danielle, I know exactly how you're feeling about the stressful math. I will never forget my second semester of sophomore year in college when I took Differential Equations. For someone who always prided themselves on being good at math... I sure was no ...

    Ta'Lisa- Recycling is an excellent way to start thinking about how environmental systems work. What you need to do at this point is just what you're doing: ask lots of questions! Perhaps you could ask to go check out your local recycling center and get ...
