Always wanted to make a difference? Environmental technicians work to protect natural resources and monitor the chemicals and fuels entering the environment. As a graduate, you will analyze and test the quality of water, soil, air, and fuel.
Expect active, real-world training. Our students have access to the latest and most effective testing and monitoring technology available. Proper sampling and record-keeping procedures are also taught through hands-on lessons, experiments and projects that take place both in and out of the classroom.
An Environmental Technology Graduate could:
- Perform field and lab work for local, state, and federal governments dealing with water, soil and indoor and outdoor air quality
- Perform tests on soil and water quality for agriculture and other research firms
- Attain a cutting-edge job with alternative fuel plants like ethanol plants, testing the plant’s product to ensure all stages of production are working properly
- Transfer into an environmental management program at a 4-year institution
