The Environmental Engineering programme embraces broad environmental concerns including water quality and supply, groundwater protection and remediation, wastewater treatment, indoor and outdoor air quality, solid and hazardous waste disposal, supply of safe drinking water, cleaning contaminated sites, preserving sensitive wetlands, and prevention of pollution through product and process design.

It involves efforts related to environmental sustainability, which is to improve recycling, waste disposal, public health, water, and air pollution control, as well as awareness and knowledge of environmental engineering laws.

The programme includes the planning, design, construction and operation of facilities in municipalities and industries, modelling and analysis of water quality, design of soil and remediation systems, planning for the disposal and reuse of wastewaters and sludges, and the collection, transport, processing, recovery and disposal of solid wastes according to accepted engineering practices.

Now everyone can push for a sustainable planet with living choices that make a difference. Expect to learn about Environmental Chemistry, Geo-Environmental Engineering, Passive and Active Environmental Controls, Environmental Impact Monitoring, Building Operation and Facilities Management, Safety Certification, Compliance and Auditing, as well as Township Design and Planning.
