Why study Environmental Engineering?

How can we develop fair and efficient systems to supply water, materials, energy, shelter and other needs to people around the world, without degradation of the natural environment? This is the role of Environmental Engineers – we design and implement appropriate technology-based solutions to provide a healthy environment, especially unpolluted air, water and soil. This is a highly multi-disciplinary field that will inspire many students with wide-ranging interests.

What will you learn?

The environmental engineering minor will give students an introduction to the aspects of science and technology required to develop systems and technologies that protect and restore the environment, as well as opportunities to put these skills to use in a context of real-world problems and sustainable development. In our programme, challenging technical concepts are embedded in the context of a variety of stimulating environmental problems. Study, practical work, and collaborations with industry are all vital parts of the course.
