Program description

Because of the complexity and multidisciplinary nature of environmental concerns involving human health and ecosystem protection, environmental engineering has become an increasingly essential discipline. To find cost-effective engineering solutions to these complex issues, it is critical to obtain a broad-based education and professional training in inter-disciplinary fields such as physical, chemical, and biological principles, resource management, and mitigation measures, in addition to in-depth knowledge of environmental engineering. This course-based programme will cover a wide range of related topics, including environmental law and management, risk assessment for human health and the environment, remediation technology, drinking water and wastewater treatment processes, contaminant transport and environmental modelling, environmental sampling, and pollution-control engineering.

Students will work in groups on an engineering project for two terms to apply concepts gained in the classroom and laboratory. Students will be encouraged to take courses from different disciplines at the institution in order to gain broad-based expertise in the topic.
