About the Program

Environmental engineering is a branch of engineering that examines and finds solutions to environmental pollution; the primary problem of our age. Today, in the world, there is a need for engineers with expertise in checking drinking water quality, wastewater and solid waste control, air and soil pollution. Studies have been carried out on ecological balance, energy, food and water conservation, recycling, and the effective and efficient use of edible resources. Environmental Engineering is a practice-oriented department like the other branches of engineering. Most of the courses offered in the 3rd and 4th years are fostered by various projects, practices, and internships that are carried out durıng the summer. Graduates will be able to put their theoretical knowledge gained during their 4 years-of-study into practice and research, so they can find solutions to current problems.

Education Opportunities

The Department of Environmental Engineering at Cyprus International University, aims to train students who are able to work in the design, operation, supervision and construction of engineering structures and systems,who can ensure the recovery of the degraded environment and prevent pollution. Throughout the four-year curriculum, students are offered courses and projects in the main areas of water and waste water treatment plants, water networks, design of transmission lines, solid waste control, modelling and control of air pollution, environmental management and planning, and noise pollution control. Students study the theoretical input as well as practical courses, and graduation projects in the analysis laboratory, computer rooms, and the library. Environmental engineers have an important role in making the world a better place to live in and achieving the objectives of sustainable development. Students receive an education in line with these goals, helping them understand the importance of their profession.

Career Areas

After graduation, students who studied environmental engineering can find work in public or private institutions or establish their own businesses, in which they undertake project design, implementation, and environmental management. As they study in the Department of Environmental Engineering, graduates can start their careers in the control of drinking water quality, sewage, the design and construction of storm water networks, as well as the selection, design, construction and operation of domestic and industrial wastewater treatment systems, noise pollution control, air pollution and its control. Graduates of the department can take part in multidisciplinary projects and take on responsibility for the legal, political and managerial roles of these projects.

Turkey is a significant energy consumer and a significant energy importing country. Energy import dependency is around 75 percent while the country has very significant indigenous but idle energy resources. Energy intensity is high and still rising offering a remarkable potential for improvement. To understand the basic characteristics, problems of Turkey’s current energy policy as well as the enormous indigenous resource potential for improvement will motivate the students to propose a more independent, sustainable and affordable energy policy. Turkey is in the center of the Eastern Mediterranean energy policy developments together with Cyprus island. Such integrated characteristic will enable the student to have a wholistic approach to solving the current dilemma around the region. However before proposing a solution, they should be better informed about the basics of the energy game and the specifics of the region.

The potential problems surrounding the use of fossil fuels, particularly in terms of climate change, contributing to global warming became a real concern for the humanity and the eco-system. Today, there is a growing shift towards environmental awareness and the the current energy-mix is coming under closer scrutiny leading to the rise of cleaner alternative energy sources. While the viability of each can be argued, they all contribute something positive when compared to fossil fuels..Lower emissions, lower fuel prices and the reduction of pollution are all advantages that the use of alternative fuels can often provide. Understanding the basic characteristics as well as pros and cons of both the conventional and alternative sources is a prerequisite for a sustainable future.
