Environmental engineering is one of the branches of engineering. It is concerned with the application of scientific and engineering principles for the protection of human populations from the effects of adverse environmental factors; protection of environments from bad effects of natural and human activities. One of the most important responsibilities of an environmental engineer is to prevent the release of harmful chemical and biological contaminants into water, air, and soil. In many universities, environmental engineering programs are being offered under the department of civil engineering or chemical engineering. Environmental "civil" engineers focus on hydrology, water resources management, bioremediation, and water treatment plant design. Environmental "chemical" engineers, on the other hand, focus on environmental chemistry, advanced air and water treatment technologies and separation processes.
