Divisions and Laboratories

The School of Environmental Engineering is organized into three Divisions, each including a number of laboratories on various subjects.


Division I focuses on the following subjects: Collection, treatment, transfer and disposal technologies for gaseous, aqueous, solid, toxic and hazardous waste and sludge; treatment technologies for potable water; Source inventory models; Monitoring of waste sources and ambient quality; Environmental meteorology; Air and water quality, hydraulic and hydrological models; Pollution risk assessment, ambient quality and emission standards; Energy conservation and alternative sources, transportation modeling and land planning; Environmental Catalysis; Development of optimal management plans; Environmental impact assessment; Application of Geographic Information Systems; Compilation of environmental data and interlinking with relevant international databases; Production of multimedia presentations for educational and research purposes; Environmental Law and environmental governance; Stochastic models. Banach spaces.

The objectives of Division III include environmental hydraulics, hydrology, geology and hydrogeology, as well as the environmental applications of the forementioned subjects (wastewater pipe nets, irrigation, runoffs, water resources, flow in porous media, contamination of soils and ground waters, drinking water pipe systems). In addition some other interests of the Division II include remediation techniques for contaminated soils and ground waters, soil mechanics, foundations, earthquake engineering, design of environmental structures, and applications of GIS (Geographical Information Systems) to environmental data.
