Hey guys, I would like to get into a field where I work with the environment. I've read that CE's and ME's can be hired as Environmental Engineers.
Currently, I am going to a CC in Las Vegas and will be going to UNLV in two years. They have a Civil and Environmental Department, as well as a Mechanical. I'm unsure about which one to major in regarding the environment. Obviously, Environmental Engineering would be the way to go but I would like to keep more flexibility in my choices when I graduate.
I hope I don't bother irritate some of you, as some may have seen these threads countless amounts of times.. But I really would appreciate some input as I'd like a plan going there.
Why these fields?
Civil - be able to make structures that can help the environment
Environmental - manage/design waste and treatment plants
Mechanical - create products or machines that produce alternative energy sources
I also read that engineers are required to have 3 years of work experience before being hired.. If it is so, what kind of work experience?
Majoring in Engineering is hard enough but would Double/Dual Majoring make a big difference in getting hired?
Right now, I'm looking towards this setup for my college goals:
Major - Civil/Environmental/Mechanical Engineering
Minor - Environmental Studies or Solar and Renewable Energy
P.S. Environmental Studies is also offered as a Major on its own
