Environmental Engineering is the use of theories and methods of environmental science, engineering and other related disciplines to:
1) Study the reasonable protection and utilization of natural resources.
2) Control and prevention of environmental pollution in order to improve the quality of the environment.
3) Promote human harmony with nature and.
4) The Development of engineering technology disciplines.
Program of study
Environmental engineering major research interests include:
(a) Water pollution control theory and technology,
(b) Environment, biological engineering and technology
(c) Solid waste treatment and resource utilization,
(d) Atmospheric control engineering and technology, and
(e) The water environment biological remediation technologies.
(f) Fundamentals in disciplines of physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering management, and microbiology.
Environmental engineering students would also learn modules in general chemistry, mechanical engineering, surveying, engineering drawing, microbiology, hydraulics, electrical engineering, environmental monitoring, computer technology and graphics, pollutants monitoring and analysis, engineering design, management and planning of basic training with the basic ability in scientific research in the field of environmental science and technology.
Students will learn to master the treatment of environmental pollution, the development and use of the rational use of energy and new energy. The students in the graduate study phase will follow his mentor to go to the factory or environmental agencies to carry out research and development projects. Environmental Engineering is now used in building construction, engineering development, factory sewage and clean energy. For example in the Netherlands, wind power is the most widely used forms of electricity generation, which greatly reduced the consumption of oil, coal for power.
Environmental Design is an interdisciplinary creative combination of architecture, landscape, interiors, environmental graphics and covers the social sciences, health care, environmental science and natural science. In the first two years of Environment and the design professional undergraduate study includes learning a public liberal arts courses. Juniors and seniors focus on learning personal choice, such as urban and regional planning, landscape design. There will be a lot of the actual practice of engineering classes, practical lessons and practice which will make the student understand the real world of planning and design
Some universities emphasize the traditional structural design & others on community planning and design. Most of the environmental design expertise is closely linked to the design and planning and policy-oriented.
Environmental design graduate students are very small in numbers, so the employment prospects are better. After pursuing the course one can have a job profile as community planner, residential area planning experts, architects, interior decorator, landscape architects, construction managers, functional facilities planners & managers.
