This programme at the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Engineering; a constituent Institute of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, aims to produce environmental engineers with a sound theoretical foundation and hands-on approach of science and engineering principles to improve the environment for human habitation and to remediate polluted sites. This degree programme addresses water and air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, and public health issues. It also includes studies on the environmental impact of proposed construction projects through Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) etc.
The Environmental Engineering programme specialises in studies of Environmental Chemistry and Micro-biology, Water Pollution Control, Ground-water Pollution, Water Resources Engineering, Hydrology, Environmental Fluid Mechanics, Environmental and Water Resources Planning, Indoor and Outdoor Urban Air Pollution, Global Air Pollution, Weather and Climate.
Teaching and Learning
The programme offers a healthy balance between theory and practice. Classroom teaching aims to build an understanding of the fundamental principles of the physical, chemical, and biological processes, employing mathematical and computational tools where relevant. The programme strives for appropriate balance between theory and experimental observation, including both laboratory and field-scale experiments.
