Environmental Engineers

High School

A bachelor's degree is mandatory to work in environmental engineering. At the high school level, the most important course work is in science (chemistry, biology, physics) and mathematics (algebra, trigonometry, and calculus). It's also good to develop written communication skills. Competition to get into the top engineering schools is tough, so it's important to do well on your ACT or SAT tests.
