Answer by Ms. Peggy Layne
Environmental engineering is a very diverse field and environmental engineers come from many different backgrounds. Prerequisites for graduate degrees vary across programs, so you should look into some of the graduate programs that interest you to find out what courses are required. From there you can probably determine what kind of preparation you need. Some environmental graduate programs focus on treatment process design, which might require more chemistry or unit operations background than you get in a typical electrical engineering program, but other programs focus on mathematical modeling, and you probably have the background for those types of classes. Your best bet is to look around for programs that interest you and contact them directly. Either a faculty member or an administrator can help you determine how best to prepare.
