Environmental Research, Testing, and Remediation

Environmental Studies and Environmental Science are interconnected, andthis subgroup explores careers that combine the two. This interdisciplinary subgroup covers areas such as soil science, stream restoration, air/water quality management, environmental compliance and waste disposal, fertilizer technology, as well as exploring the related skills needed for environmental testing, data management, analysis and modeling and understanding the various tools used for remediation (e.g., GIS, CADD, and regulatory/compliance software).  Individuals who pursue these careers often work for federal, state, and local government, public works departments, consulting firms, private laboratories, nonprofit organizations, water treatment plants and within consumer products manufacturing companies.
