This program has been developing solutions to environmental problems in the two focal areas of Environmental Technology and Management (ETM) and Water and Wastewater Engineering (WWE). ETM emphasizes as systems approach to manage the environment, considering the interrelated roles of industry and government agencies. Subjects covered included air pollution, solid waste, industrial pollution control, hazardous waste control and minimization, environmental impact assessment, and waste audits. WWE responds to the need to produce engineers who have specialized in the planning, design, operation and management of water supply, wastewater treatment, and disposal systems. Specializations includes water supply and sewerage system engineering, water quality management, water and wastewater treatment systems, environmental sanitation systems, waste recycling and resources recovery, and natural and ecological treatment systems.
