Discipline summary

Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to improve the quality of natural and anthropogenic environment. Environmental engineers main objective is to provide healthy water, air, and land for human and other organisms. Activities of environmental engineer includes; water supply, wastewater management, air pollution control, solid waste disposal and management, recycling, radiation protection, industrial hygiene, environmental sustainability, public health issues, activities related to environmental laws and studies on the environmental impacts of proposed construction projects.
