About the Department

The aim of the program is to further the works of ethical researchers and experts in their field who hold a global reputation in: environmental engineering and technologies, the identification and provision of solutions to regional and global environmental problems, the contribution to science, the understanding of global research projects, and who can put the policies necessary for environmental protection and sustainability into use. In this program, Ph.D. courses deal with sources of soil, water and air pollution, their effects on environment and existing treatment strategies. In addition, students are educated about and by the latest available technologies for identification of the pollutants in environmental matrices. Students are able to conduct their research in environmental research laboratories and also, they can access scientific documents to investigate the related projects across the world.

Education Opportunities

The Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering program in Cyprus International University aims to train researchers to be able to work in the design, operation, supervision and construction of engineering structures and systems that can ensure the recovery of degraded nature and prevent pollution. Throughout the coursework and thesis study students deal with the main topics of water and waste water treatment plants, water networks, design of transmission lines, solid waste control, modeling and control of air pollution, environmental management and planning and noise pollution control. Students benefit from the analysis laboratory, computer rooms and library to study theoretical and practical components for the courses and thesis. Studies in the field of environmental engineering have an important role in making the world a better place to live in and achieving the objectives of sustainable development.

Career Areas

Graduates of Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering can find employment opportunities in state or private institutions where they would take on project design, implementation and environmental management. As a result of studying in the Department of Environmental Engineering, graduates start their careers in control of the 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 system, noise pollution control and air pollution and its control. Environmental engineering is a multidisciplinary field therefore; graduates can work together with civil, mechanical, energy engineers as well as political scientists, lawyers and other social scientists in a wide range of projects.
