About the Course
Environmental engineering is a rapidly growing branch of engineering, which is concerned with devising, implementing and managing solutions to protest and restore the environment within an overall framework of sustainable development. Environmental engineers are involved in soil, air, water contamination and pollution control, liquid and solid waste management systems, alternative energy resources, human and environmental health concerns etc. As environmental problems are complex and multifaceted, environmental engineering is a highly interdisciplinary endeavour.
The four-year undergraduate Environmental Engineering Program has been designed to provide a more complete learning experience by incorporating the three essential ingredients of the University Curriculum Structure, namely, the University Level Requirements, Program Requirements and Unrestricted Elective Modules. The Program Requirements are made up of general Faculty Requirements and Major Requirements of the Program that is granting the degree. For a breakdown of the requirements, see Table a.
The requirements for a major in Environmental Engineering ensure a balanced exposure to science, engineering principles as well as contemporary technologies. Besides education in science and technology, the students will broaden their University experience by taking supporting modules that constitute University Level Requirements and Faculty Requirements. The Unrestricted Elective Modules enable students to take modules that complement individual professional career plans or to simply pursue personal curiosity and interest.
In summary, the four-year undergraduate Environmental Engineering Program will provide greater flexibility in the choice of career paths of the graduates. It is anticipated that the students will be more motivated in their learning endeavors to make themselves well prepared to pursue their professional interests in a knowledge-based economy.
Program Educational Objectives
The B.Eng. (Environmental Engineering) curriculum is designed to meet student needs in the context of the mission of the Program, the Department and the Faculty of Engineering. The Program educational objectives established in 2007 by ESE faculty are focused on the capabilities of its B.Eng. graduates in the 3-5 years and beyond timeframe of employment. They are:
The B.Eng. (Environmental Engineering) Program aims to achieve the following learning outcomes. These outcomes were established in 2007 and are focused on assessments needed as students progress through the B.Eng. curriculum in years 1 through 4
The curriculum in the Faculty of Engineering would require the student to fulfil the following requirements:
For admission to the Environmental Science and Engineering Programme, a candidate must fulfill the following requirements:
|University Level Requirements||20MCs|
|Unrestricted Elevtive Modules||32MCs|
|Total 160 MCs|
* Note that the programme requirements could be more for some engineering programme
