Environmental Engineering Technician
Environmental engineering technicians help environmental engineers develop machines and production systems that effectively manage waste and reduce pollution. They are analyzers, contributors, and humanitarians that actively help clean up our cities and towns and prevent the spread of dangerous conditions such as asbestos and lead poisoning.
These technicians typically work in laboratories, as well as outdoors where they collect air and water samples to analyze. Becoming an environmental engineering technician involves a dedication to environmental conservation efforts. An associate’s degree in environmental engineering technology is generally required. Jobs for this role are expected to grow 9% by 2028.
