About this program

The wants and needs of a rapidly expanding, global population means it has never been more important to shape our environmental future. Environmental engineering is your pathway to protecting the natural environment and its resources by ensuring that we minimise the adverse effect we may have on it. In this program you will develop an understanding of complex environmental problems and issues, and of the challenges facing environmental sustainability. You will learn to design creative engineering solutions and manage key projects associated with environmental protection in the area of solid and hazardous waste management, air quality monitoring and control, water and wastewater treatment, and renewable energy. You will develop the skills to incorporate sustainability concepts into engineering work practices from various discipline backgrounds.
