Environmental engineering expert witness candidates are typically professional engineers with degrees in environmental engineering, metallurgy, geotechnical engineering, mechanical engineering, hydrogeology, structural engineering, and/or civil engineering. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an environmental engineering professional with expert witness testimony experience.
Environmental engineering, a sub-discipline of civil engineering and chemical engineering, is focused on protecting the health of living beings, as well as improving environment quality. Environmental engineering covers multiple disciplines including chemistry, biology, geology, hydraulics, and hydrology.
