Can someone fill me in on what exactly Environmental Engineers do?
I am crazy about environmental sciences, but I'm not sure whether to go towards environmental engineering or environmental sciences. Im not clear as to what exactly does these two majors lead to and what they do specifically. Thank you! #environmental-science #environmental
I find environmental SCIENCE and environmental ENGINEERING to be very different. I took one semester of Env Engineering and switched to Earth Science. Eng vs Sci are two ways of looking at the world. Engineering (to me) is more a way to calculate a solution to a problem based on known factors/quantities. Using known formulas you can come up with an answer. Science is more about observing, original thinking and looking at the world in new ways. I'm a little biased because I'm now a scientist. I found Engineering too restrictive.
But everyone one is different, so it depends on how you like to work and how you approach problem solving.
