1. Introduction

This program seeks to produce environmental scientist and engineers with a strong fundamental technical education, who master theoretical course of environmental science & engineering and experimental skills. The program is for students who seek a broad education in application of environmental science & engineering to a variety of specific areas, including environment and energy, environmental chemistry, water and wastewater engineering, air pollution control engineering, solid waste treatment, environmental catalysis, environmental monitoring, as well as environmental biology. Environmental science & engineering students acquire the necessary background and skills to design/optimize environmental waste treatment processes, and know how to carry out the fundamental and applied investigation on the problems found in environmental industry.

Environmental science & engineering includes water and wastewater treatment technology, optimization of water supply and drainage systems, solid waste and waste gas pollution purification, biological energy development and utilization, ecological restoration, environmental management and planning, and low-carbon technologies. In recent years, School of Environmental Science and Engineering has undertaken a number of national research projects, and won over 10 provincial science and technology progress prize. At the same time, School of Environmental Science and Engineering has cultivated a large number of environment engineers and high-level scientific researchers.

The main directions in the engineering field include:

1. Water pollution control and water resources comprehensive utilization technology

2. Air pollution control and waste gas purification technology

3. Solid waste disposal and energy utilization technology

4. Ecological restoration technology

5. Environmental planning and management

6. Environmental monitoring and environmental impact assessment

 

2. Objective

This program aims to develop independent innovation activities, skills of international academic communication, and spirit of collective cooperation, so that the students will become highly qualified professionals in the field of environmental science & engineering.

 

3. Features

This program emphasizes on central courses in parallel with frontier studies. The compulsory courses focus on learning basic courses so that students have a solid, theoretical foundation in environmental science & engineering. The elective courses will be introduced by a number of PhD advisors with overseas experiences, focusing on how to deal with environmental science & engineering problems emerging from many fields including energy and environment in order to improve students’ research capabilities.

The program focuses on both knowledge teaching and interest training through combining course learning with lab training. There are a number of research teams in School of Environmental Science & Engineering. The main courses are given by various professors with a wealth of research experience and fruitful research achievement, who can provide more real cases in the class for improving the learning efficiency of students. In addition, there are many research fields in Environmental Science & Engineering of Tianjin University, which can provide more opportunities for students to integrate multidisciplinary knowledge and might yield some cross-frontier investigations.

 

4. Duration

Learning period is 2.5 years.
