Energy engineering is a kind of course that relates to study of application of a mix of engineering disciplines such as mechanical and electrical engineering, which solves the problems of extracting, collecting and utilizing energy resources to satisfy human needs without destroying the environment.
There is always a remarkable growth in the area for Energy and Environmental Engineering graduates and for the postgraduates. Wind power is leading the race to expand but some of the others, for example solar electricity from photovoltaic, are not far behind. There are also tremendous career opportunities in wind, wave, hydro and solar energy areas.
Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to improve the environment (air, water, and/or land resources), to provide healthful water, air, and land for human habitation and for other organisms.
