The program is a collaboration of three faculties:
The main faculty which deals with all student related issues is Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Occupation and employment:
The environment today is a focal issue in both Israel and the world. The Environmental Engineer deals with technologies that reduce pollution and stop the deterioration of water, air and soil caused by mankind.
The alumni of the faculty can expect to find themselves incorporated in private, public and government offices. In these offices you will be expected to deal with planning, managing or researching environmental issues. Occupation in industrial plants, local authorities, government branches, research facilities and startup firms is common. The main occupations deal with the protection of water recources (streams, lakes and groundwater); reduction of pollution from vehicles, industrial plants and power plants; treatment of sewage and sludge from cities and rural areas; reuse of treated water; recycling and removing solid waste (garbage); improvement of industrial processes for cleaner products and diminished pollution of the environment.
Undergraduate Track course and disciplines:
The curriculum for undergraduates in Environmental Engineering includes a varied scientific foundation comprised of: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Computer science. With the foundation in place the student starts to learn and use the basic tools for all the different branches of the field: Fluid Mechanics, Hydrology, Elements of Strength, Procedures in Chemical Engineering, Waste and Garbage treatment, Biotechnology, Ecology and Soils.
A BSc in Environmental Engineering diploma is given to those who finish the track.
Graduate studies in Environmental Engineering propose to enrich the student’s knowledge in the many aspects of the field. The student has the option to continue his higher studies (Masters and Doctorates) in the Technion or in different universities.
Preparation for the track:
In order to successfully tackle the first stages of the track it is recommended to arrive with a high knowledge of mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology.
The admission requirements and application for undergraduate studies are specified in the newsletter given by the admission and registration center (Ulman building, fourth floor, tel: +972-48293306).
Applicants with prior academic knowledge will be received based on their prior achievements, for more details refer to the admission and registration center.
