The Environmental Engineering graduates are well prepared to implement project work and perform contractor work, maintenance services, repair and construction work as well as manufacturing and trading tasks in all the areas of economy and administration. The substantial shortage of environmental engineers on the one hand, and the growing demand for environmental quality, the rising environmental standards and investment development on the other hand, all forecast promising employment prospects to the students of this field both in Poland and in other EU countries.
The Environmental Engineering graduates can benefit from the opportunity provided by the course curriculum, to apply for the builder’s licence in a wide range of specialist building works such as installation of HVAC systems, gas pipelines, water supply and sewage networks.
The educational objectives of the 1st-cycle academic programme in the field of Environmental Engineering are:
1. to equip students with basic engineering knowledge in the field of Environmental Engineering, required for the design, implementation and maintenance of devices, systems and technologies for water intake and distribution, sewage and sediment neutralisation and treatment, waste treatment, prevention of environmental degradation, as well as the design and installation of plumbing and sewage systems, water supply and sewage networks and HVAC systems,
2. to provide students with the skills to identify and resolve the basic environmental issues by means of analytical, simulation and experimental methods and to evaluate and critically reflect on the non-technical and economic outcomes of engineering practices; to enable students to develop competence in a foreign language at B2 level, to effectively employ the specialist language within the field of environmental engineering as well as to select and incorporate information from databases and professional resources,
3. to develop the graduates’ skills to work independently and collaboratively in municipal services departments, design offices, environmental protection divisions in industries, local and central administration bodies, universities and research institutes as well as directly in project implementation,
4. to prepare the 1st-degree graduates to transfer to the 2nd-cycle programme.
