U.S. News & World Report ranks environmental engineering as the best engineering job with above average scores for salary as well as work/life balance. It’s an impressive title to hold – and one that is well deserved.
Though the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reduced the rate of employment growth over ten tears from roughly 12 percent to eight percent in 2016, the current rate of unemployment in the US is 0.8 percent. And, an eight percent industry growth is at least on par with the American economy as a whole.
Salaries for environmental engineers aren’t the highest in the field, but the 2016 median pay of $84,890 is just the median. Those with master’s degrees definitely fare much better – and certainly, the pay increases with the number of years in the field.
According to Salary.com, environmental engineers with master’s degrees and experience can expect a salary between $111,719 and $121,560. But, of course, the solid work/life balance is a compelling reason to get a jumpstart on your education and your career in environmental engineering.
Once you’ve considered some of the top schools, perhaps you’ll want to take a look at the employers recruiting environmental engineers at these universities. It could just be the inspiration you were looking for.
