Environmental Engineering is one of the most sophisticated, complex and fast growing engineering disciplines. It concerns the protection of human population from the potentially deleterious effects of human activities and the improvement of environmental quality for people’s health and well-being within sustainable development conditions. Sustainable development becomes a global hot topic which must be addressed by environmental engineers. Other important areas of environmental engineers’ activities are: design of systems of pollution control of surface and groundwater, air quality management, recovery and containment of solid wastes, environmental impact analysis, soil contamination and site clean-up. The aim of our curriculum of studies is to investigate, develop, and impart fundamental and advanced engineering knowledge relevant to the field of environmental engineering and emerging international and national challenges. Basing on technical knowledge, experience and inquiry we provide creative research, problem solving, and leadership that prepares our students for a successful career. With education and qualifications in Environmental Engineering you may be a designer, contractor, consultant, manager, manufacturer in many public and private sectors.
The major objective of the BSc and MSc Environment Engineering programmes is to provide a high quality, interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to people searching for solutions to the environmental problems of today and the future, concerning: water resources protection, air pollution control, solid waste management, environmental impact assessment, renewable energy systems and others.
Environmental engineers have the necessary skills to address these issues and improve the quality of human life in an effective, sustainable, and economical manner.
The modern activities of the environmental engineer profession embrace a multidisciplinary approach embodying the complete spectrum of environmental effects on health and ecology and the full implementation of 21st century sciences to solve complex pollution problems. Environmental engineers are responsible for the effective application of scientific discoveries and modern engineering technologies within an environment-sensitive society taking care of its future development. An environmental engineer is now a profession of a great responsibility and bright future.
