Department of Environmental Engineering

Recognizing the environmental impacts and concerns of the industrialization and urbanization, Department of Environmental Engineering was set up at NUST in 2008. Initially, the department offered post graduate program only. However, at present the department offers programs at undergraduate and graduate levels. The programs are interdisciplinary in nature that combine the fundamentals of the engineering principles with the natural and environmental sciences. The curriculums are designed to enable students to develop indigenous solutions of the problems related to industrial and municipal waste water streams, industrial gaseous emissions and urban air quality, municipal and industrial solid wastes and climate change and associated adaptation and mitigation.

Management of the environmental resources to ensure the human wellbeing and protect the systems that support life, is one of the biggest challenges for modern society. Recognizing the complexities of these challenges, we aim to produce graduates who develop innovative solutions that consider sustainability in the use of natural resources while improving and maintaining living conditions of ever-growing population and urbanization. Through a comprehensive package of courses, laboratories, internships, industrial visits and projects, offered by renowned faculty in close collaboration with the relevant industries, our students learn the knowledge and skills required to tackle the environmental and climate concerns of urbanized lifestyle and practice them to solve the simulated and the real-world environmental problems. Besides serving the industries within Pakistan, a significant number of our graduates are serving the industries abroad.
