Air quality engineers work to ensure the highest-quality air is maintained and accessible to people in all environments. Often, air quality engineers specialize in either indoor or outdoor air quality and work on issues such as emission control, contaminant removal, and workplace ventilation. Air quality engineers can also review environmental assessments for proposed construction projects and make recommendations for air quality and pollution control equipment.
