IT careers in the Environment sector

Design software

Architects and structural engineers are now relying on effective technology to create simulations of building which not only give a visual sense of aesthetics but also allow for details of materials, structural integrity and the environmental impact to be measured.

Smart Houses

Building sustainable houses which are carbon zero are with us now. Government incentives for domestic users of power to become sustainable are more recent innovations. Individual houses generating extra power to feed back into the national grid is also in progress.

Nuclear sensors

Monitoring power generation processes highly dangerous, remote or inaccessible environments make cost-effective use of robotic or remote control instrumentation.

Sea bed mapping

To enable petroleum geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers to effectively map the sea bed for the most cost-effective method of routing oil wells is greatly enhanced by 3D visualisation systems.
