Environmental engineering technology is the application of engineering principles and interdisciplinary environmental sciences to address challenges associated with human impacts on the environment. This field characterizes the dynamic relationship between human activity and the environment to determine strategies to minimize negative impacts. Career opportunities as an environmental engineering technologist vary greatly including municipal and industrial treatment facility technologists, laboratory and environmental quality technicians, health and safety managers, environmental consultants, and sustainability managers for industry and governmental agencies. Students will develop skills in hands on applications and interdisciplinary coursework in engineering, mathematics, geoscience, chemistry, physics, and biology applied to a variety of environmental challenges. Students examine the effects of pollution on humans and ecosystems, form strategies to improve processes to prevent or minimize negative effects, and develop sustainable solutions to using available resources.
Some noticeable projects in Bangladesh include Gandharbpur Water treatment plant, Pagla Sewage Treatment Plant, Sakhipur faecal sludge treatment plant, etc.
