Is environmental engineering a good degree to hold?

I mean, I predict a lot of job growth in the future as big companies go green, but I've been told it's kind of useless and to go for civil or chemical instead.

    I wouldn't say it's useless, but an Env.E degree is more specific, while a Civ.E degree is more general and will probably give you more opportunities for jobs when you graduate. If you know you want to do environmental, though, go for it. I went with civil and have appreciated the flexibility it gave me, even though I ended up in the water/wastewater field.

    My dad has a degree in environmental engineering. It is good money and it is definitely not a bad degree to get into. He worked his way up to the president of his company, and makes 6 figures.
