The Bachelor of Environmental Engineering is designed to graduate outstanding engineers who can identify, evaluate and solve complex environmental problems, and who desire to continue their education on a lifelong basis.
As an Environmental Engineering student, you will integrate biotech and engineering fundamentals. Through professional projects and papers, you will develop expertise in the analysis, manipulation, and design of microbiological systems with applications in, e.g., environmental protection through the use of green and sustainable technologies, modern biological wastewater treatment, drinking water treatment and distribution, bioremediation of toxic contaminants, renewable energy production through biofuels, biotechnological innovation and sustainable, low-impact technologies for rural applications of water treatment.
The Master of Environmental Engineering prepares graduates to plan, functionally design, control, operate and manage municipal and industrial pollution-prevention systems. Students are exposed to a learning atmosphere that provides a mix of theory and practical problem solving approaches. The flexible course options and student research projects offer a variety of opportunities.
Areas of research and scholarly activities include environmental systems management, monitoring, sensing, and visualization, water security, flood risk management, conflict resolution, river water quality modeling, ground water modeling, solid and hazardous waste management, contamination remediation, climate change studies, and development of decision support systems and GIS based applications.
This course provides consultants, operators, regulators and managers with the professional skills and training to contribute to the provision of environmentally sound and economically sustainable systems in the fields of clean water supply, wastewater treatment, and the management of solid waste, including wastes from the oil industry.
It is intended for those who find themselves in management positions with little experience of the techniques necessary to manage the range of projects for which they have responsibilities, or people with a background in management who feel they lack up-to-date technical knowledge in the rapidly changing field of environmental engineering.
The candidate will build his knowledge of key issues such as water resource, solid waste or health management. Taught by experts in a research-intensive environment, the candidate will gain an insight into the latest developments in this exciting field and prepare to meet the challenges they bring.
