Studies in English
We kindly invite you to study in English at the Faculty of Environmental Engineering, the biggest entity of this expertise in Poland.
The Faculty of Environmental Engineering is one of the biggest faculties within the Warsaw University of Technology (the WUT). It is a centre of teaching and research in the field of environmental engineering and protection. The main purpose of Environmental Engineering is to limit the impact of human activity on the environment by management and control of water, soil and atmospheric pollution, as well as to meet the rising demand for creating and sustaining comfortable conditions for work and relaxation.
The community of the Faculty consists of more than 130 academics and almost 3,000 students of all types and levels of studies: BSc (Bachelor of Science), MSc (Master of Science) and PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree, full time, extra-mural and post-graduate studies. The Faculty continues educational traditions of water engineering courses, which started in 1915, and have been successively developed by including other elements of environment: air and soil, as well as the technical systems of buildings, such as: air conditioning, heating, gas, water supply and sewage. Well-equipped laboratories and highly qualified teachers offer a high level of studies carried out in accordance with the principles set out by the "Bologna Declaration". The Faculty offers two programmes taught in English: undergraduate programme in Environmental Engineering leading to BSc Eng. (Bachelor of Science in Engineering) degree and graduate programme in Environment Protection Engineering leading to MSc (Master of Science) degree. For details see "Programme offer" section. Polish accession to the European Union causes that the requirements and standards relating to the environment are similar to those in other EU countries, therefore the content of the studies has become universal throughout the Union.
The Faculty actively participates in the EU educational programmes (LLP-Erasmus) as well as co-operates in the frame of national and international research programmes with numerous scientific centres and universities, international organisations and industrial companies.
Environmental Engineering is one of the most sophisticated, complex and fast growing engineering disciplines. It concerns the protection of human population from the potentially deleterious effects of human activities and the improvement of environmental quality for people’s health and well-being within sustainable development conditions. Sustainable development becomes a global hot topic which must be addressed by environmental engineers. Other important areas of environmental engineers’ activities are: design of systems of pollution control of surface and groundwater, air quality management, recovery and containment of solid wastes, environmental impact analysis, soil contamination and site clean-up. The aim of our curriculum of studies is to investigate, develop, and impart fundamental and advanced engineering knowledge relevant to the field of environmental engineering and emerging international and national challenges. Basing on technical knowledge, experience and inquiry we provide creative research, problem solving, and leadership that prepares our students for a successful career. With education and qualifications in Environmental Engineering you may be a designer, contractor, consultant, manager, manufacturer in many public and private sectors.
The major objective of the Environment Engineering Programme is to provide a high quality, interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to people searching for solutions to the environmental problems of today and the future, concerning: water resources protection, air pollution control, solid waste management, environmental impact assessment, renewable energy systems and others.
Environmental engineers have the necessary skills to address these issues and improve the quality of human life in an effective, sustainable, and economical manner.
The modern activities of the environmental engineer profession embrace a multidisciplinary approach embodying the complete spectrum of environmental effects on health and ecology and the full implementation of 21st century sciences to solve complex pollution problems. Environmental engineers are responsible for the effective application of scientific discoveries and modern engineering technologies within an environment-sensitive society taking care of its future development. An environmental engineer is now a profession of a great responsibility and bright future.
Development of this form of study at our Faculty is supported by Development Programme of Warsaw University of Technology in the frame of the European Social Fund.
