Environmental and Water Resources Engineering

Environmental and Water Resources Engineering

The field of Environmental and Water Resources Engineering comprises a wide variety of interconnected research areas, including environmental fluid dynamics, hydraulics, hydrology and water resources engineering, as well as desalination and wastewater treatment technologies, air quality monitoring and pollution control. Research in this field aims to improve our understanding of environmental processes and our capability to preserve and protect the environment, natural resources and public health.

CIEE faculty are engaged in a wide range of environmental and water resources engineering research projects, with the goal of addressing and solving pressing environmental issues connected with (a) sustainable water and wastewater treatment systems and water quality in general; (b) desalination; (c) water resources management; (d) climate modeling; (e) environmental monitoring and remote sensing; (f) coastal engineering and anthropogenic impacts on aquatic & terrestrial ecosystems habitats and coastal zone management (CZM) and (g) waste management and landfill design and operation.
