There are jobs for environmental engineers, biofuel engineers, wind energy engineers, solar energy engineers, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) engineers and many more.

People are becoming more and more concerned with saving and preserving the environment, and making the earth a better place to live. They are buying fuel-efficient cars, using alternative forms of energy, eating more organic foods, and opting to buy products made from recycled materials. Because of this new "green" mentality, Green jobs are a multi-billion dollar industry that's constantly growing.

Green Job Education Requirements

They also need hands-on training and experience in their desired field through an apprenticeship program. Green jobs require an aptitude for technical subjects and a willingness to think at a high level and problem solve. Some specific training requirements include:
  • Environmental engineers design solutions for environmental problems involving water treatment, soil contamination, beach erosion and even public health due to air quality. They need training is geology, geography, biology and even weather.

Green jobs are growing at an above average rate because of the green living trend in the United States. People are looking for ways to improve their lives without leaving a footprint on the environment. This means engineers need to come up with ways to do this, whether it is inventing a new type of biofuel or improving upon alternative forms of energy. It is a stable career choice with exponential job growth opportunities.

Green Job Salary Information
