The professionals will acquire knowledge and skills in the field of environmental engineering that allows them to adapt production processes to the principles of sustainable development concepts, providing practical and innovative solutions for the benefit of society and the preservation or improvement of the quality of the environment.

The purpose of this program is to train professionals with a “comprehensive and interdisciplinary vision” of environmental problems, equipped with engineering and management tools that allow them to perform in the study, protection, use, control, and restoration of environmental systems from an integrative perspective and under changing scenarios.

The Environmental Engineer will have knowledge and skills that allow them to:

–           Create, develop, and adapt knowledge that allows a better understanding of the environment and its impact on the structural anthropogenic and non-anthropogenic activities.

–           Create, develop, and adapt processes that prevent the negative effects of human and natural activities in the environment.

–           Elaborate theories, plan, decide, and suggest solutions to problems that involve environmental reports about physical, biological, and social aspects.

–           Promote the proper use of natural resources and advice technically in the development and design of clean technologies for the exploitation, transformation, and use through sustainable criteria with no competitive loss.

Objectives and competencies

  • Design, calculate, and project facilities for the treatment of effluents; environmental sanitation; treatment, collection, and supply of water.
  • Direct and control the operation and maintenance of the aforementioned.
  • Certify the operation, condition of use, or state of the aforementioned.
  • Project and conduct matters related to hygiene, safety, and control of environmental impact in relation to their professional activity.
  • Carry out studies and advise on the pollution and contamination of water courses and bodies, (surface and underground), of the soil and the air, derived from productive processes, projects, engineering works, and other anthropogenic actions.
  • Carry out, supervise and coordinate plans and policies in regard to the implementation of environmental management systems and tools.
  • Participate in the identification, formulation, and comprehensive evaluation (social, economic, and environmental) of projects that involve or compromise natural resources.
