What is an Environmental Engineer?
An Environmental Engineer is a professional engineer who applies engineering principles to the solution of environmental problems. They are involved in water and air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, and public health issues. Environmental engineers conduct hazardous-waste management studies in which they evaluate the significance of the hazard, advise on treatment and containment, and develop regulations to prevent mishaps. They design municipal water supply and industrial wastewater treatment systems. They conduct research on the environmental impact of proposed construction projects, analyze scientific data, and perform quality-control checks. Environmental engineers work as consultants, helping their clients to comply with regulations and to clean up hazardous sites.
What is a Licensed Professional Engineer?
Professional Engineer is the term for registered or licensed engineers. The term Professional Engineer is a legally protected title in the U.S. and Canada by state or provincial law—in most states only registered Professional Engineers are permitted to use the title or carry out the work of Professional Engineering. The earmark that distinguishes a licensed/registered Professional Engineer is the authority to sign and seal or "stamp" engineering documents (reports, drawings, and calculations) for a study, estimate, design or analysis, thus taking legal responsibility for it.
What is a Certified Hazardous Materials Practitioner (CHMP)?
A CHMM handles, manages, or advises others on hazardous materials or situations associated with or potentially including such items. A CHMM may perform management and/or compliance duties for a corporation, business, government, or some other organization in this capacity, or work in a related field associated with hazardous materials such as environmental protection, safety, hazmat transportation, or security. Any time hazardous materials are involved, a CHMM professional can advise on proper handling and management for ensuring safety and compliance.
What is Environmental Engineering?
Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to improve the environment (air, water, and/or land resources), to provide healthful water, air, and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to remediate polluted sites. Negative environmental effects can be decreased and controlled through public education, conservation, regulations, and the application of good engineering practices. "Pollutants" may be chemical, biological, thermal, radioactive, or even mechanical. Environmental engineering emphasizes several areas: process engineering, environmental chemistry, water and wastewater treatment (sanitary engineering), waste reduction/management, and pollution prevention/cleanup.
