Environmental Processes

The phenomena, concepts, and technology essential for maintaining the quality of the air-land-water environment are the concerns of environmental engineers. Specialization in Environmental Engineering requires an understanding of the biological, chemical, and physical phenomena that affect the behavior and fate of contaminants in natural systems as well as the planning, design, and operation of the engineering facilities needed to ensure effective control of environmental quality. Faculty members concentrate their efforts on the mechanisms of pollutant transformation in nature, contaminant transport and biodegradation in the environment as well as water quality control engineering for sustainable water treatment in developing countries.
