We offer a Bachelor’s course in Environmental Engineering for international students, course  last 7 semesters. The programme in Environmental Engineering is focused on engineering problems related to the protection of environment and sustainable development. Alumni, owing the Engineer’s title, will have engineering skills built upon the more general knowledge of basic subjects such as chemistry, mathematics, physics, biology and microbiology. The students are given general knowledge about environment components and basic environmental technologies used in water protection, water and sewage processing, soil remediation and land reclamation, waste management and air protection. Environmental aspects of the bioenergy production are stressed and an emphasis is put on the microbial bases of biotechnological processes in environmental engineering. The students will gain a basic knowledge of environmental law, quality assessment and management in relation to the national and international perspectives. Our teachers have years of experience in teaching international students. They are actively involved in the field, with a variety of ongoing research programs and many international publications. We are committed to both practical and theoretical education, so our students work with us on our research projects in our modern laboratories. The programme of Environmental Engineering assumes interdisciplinary knowledge and skills.



The graduates will specialize in individual topics through the choice of elective courses in various areas of environment and environmental technologies. They will master the ability to use computer techniques also for designing. The graduates will be prepared to exploit and assess the efficiency of operation of technical devices and facilities forming technical infrastructure systems in the field of: water supply and wastewater disposal, water and wastewater treatment, disposal and utilization of sewage sludge, and waste management. The graduate will be prepared for diagnostic measurements and control of effectiveness of technologies related to environmental engineering.
