Environmental Engineering looks at the existing environmental problems in society, namely those caused by the implementation of solutions given by other areas of Engineering. In a world where sustainability is on the agenda, the role of environmental engineers involves understanding what tools to use in order to lower the environmental impact and the ecological footprint of human activities while maintaining the efficiency of related processes. Thus, this field of Engineering operates in pollution planning and control, waste, effluent and gaseous pollutant treatment and environmental system management, while optimizing soil and land use.
Provide students with a solid basic training that enables them to intervene in the area of Environmental Engineering and monitor the evolution of knowledge and technologies throughout their professional practice. The program focuses on the acquisition of skills in methods of analysis, planning, design, management, monitoring and research. The development of basic transversal skills in information technology, design, mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology is sought.
Each student will be trained to:
• easily adapt to environmental changes as well as technological and societal changes;
• adapt existing methodologies to new problems;
• understand the economic, social and human aspects and their relationship with technical aspects, considering the environment as an asset in development processes;
• develop personal attitudes, such as creativity, learning, permanent updating, leadership, team work, and ethical and behavioral aspects.
