ABSTRACT Environmental engineering is an engineering discipline that is concerned with protecting people from adverse environmental impacts such as pollution, as well as improving environmental quality. Environmental engineers work to improve recycling, waste disposal, public health, water and air pollution control. The application of environmental engineering extends to the beginning of civilization. When human groups began to live in semi-permanent settlements, they had to deal with the difficulties of providing clean water, solid waste and sewage. With the growth of cities and the emergence of large-scale agriculture and manufacturing, people are beginning to worry about air quality and soil pollution. For this reason, the foundation of environmental engineering has been laid. Environmental engineering is an engineering discipline that focuses on protecting the environment by reducing waste and pollution. Environmental engineers use engineering, soil science, biology and chemistry principles to solve environmental problems. It deals with the design of technologies and processes that control the release of pollution and clean up existing pollution.

Environmental engineers design, plan and implement measures to prevent, control or correct environmental hazards. They work
on waste treatment, wastewater treatment, onsite remediation or pollution control technology.
