General Introduction:

The Department of Environmental Engineering, (formerly Institute of Environmental Engineering & Research) established in 1985 has been contributing effectively in academic research, training and community based activities since 1997 when it is renamed as a department of this University.

With respect to academics, this department offers two postgraduate programmes (morning & evening) leading to the degree of Master of Envi Eng (M.Engg.) by course work as well as by research. Emphasis of the programmes is to equip students and practicing professionals with advanced knowledge, information and database so that they can cope with ever increasing environmental degradation of the country in general and of the city in particular. During these studies, a student completes a number of courses in water, air, noise, land and marine pollution, industrial and municipal solid waste management, environmental impact assessment, water quality management, sustainable development and other major and minor topics related to the environment. Course work is supplemented with field investigation, seminars, and guest lectures to enable students to broaden their understanding of issues based activities working together with NGOs, City District Government and other relevant Organisations in deferent development works aimed at restoring and improving public sector services and infrastructures. In future also, the department intends and plans to work in the advisory capacity for agencies in charge of environmental management of urban areas as well as the natural resources. More...
