WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE CCC?



FEATURED CAREER OF THE WEEK

ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERS 


What They Do:
Environmental engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems. They are involved in efforts to improve recycling, waste disposal, public health, and water and air pollution control. They also address global issues, such as unsafe drinking water, climate change, and environmental sustainability.

Work Environment:
They work in a variety of settings because of the nature of the tasks they do. When they are working with other engineers and with urban and regional planners, environmental engineers are likely to be in offices. When they are working with businesspeople and lawyers, environmental engineers are likely to be at seminars, where they present information and answer questions. When they are working with hazardous waste technicians and environmental scientists, environmental engineers work at specific sites outdoors.

How to Become One:
Environmental engineers must have a bachelor’s degree in environmental engineering or a related field, such as civil, chemical, or general engineering. Employers also value practical experience. Therefore, cooperative engineering programs, in which college credit is awarded for structured job experience, are valuable as well.

Pay:
The median annual wage for environmental engineers was $84,890 in May 2016. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $49,830, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $130,120.

FEATURED COLLEGE OF THE WEEK

OCCIDENTAL COLLEGE
Los Angeles, CA


The mission of Occidental College is to provide a gifted and diverse group of students with a total educational experience of the highest quality—one that prepares them for leadership in an increasingly complex, interdependent and pluralistic world. The distinctive interdisciplinary and multicultural focus of the College's academic program seeks to foster both the fulfillment of individual aspirations and a deeply rooted commitment to the public good.

Occidental College is a private institution that was founded in 1887. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 2,062, its setting is urban, and the campus size is 120 acres. It utilizes a semester-based academic calendar. Occidental College's ranking in the 2018 edition of Best Colleges is National Liberal Arts Colleges, 44.

The Occidental campus is located in the suburban neighborhood of Eagle Rock, 8 miles from downtown Los Angeles. Downtown L.A. is brimming with opportunities for college students: internships, dining, nightlife and more. Freshmen must live on campus, and they are allowed to have cars. That’s a good thing, because the campus is within an hour’s drive of big-time attractions like Venice Beach, Disneyland and Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Parking on campus is free with a permit, and about two-thirds of students bring cars. Students can choose from more than 100 clubs and organizations to get involved in on campus. Occidental has a handful of sororities and fraternities, and a coed organization. Even more students compete on the school’s sports teams, the orange and black Tigers, which are members of the NCAA Division III Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Occidental students can also take classes at CalTech and Art Center College of Design, and can earn joint degrees at CalTech, Columbia University and the University of Southern California's Keck Graduate Institute.
