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.
