The "Environment engineering" minor

Last modification on: 15/03/2015 - 14:41

This minor targets to train engineers skilled in fields such as hydraulic, physical chemistry and chemical engineering to design hydraulic networks, water treatment facilities or environmentally friendly processes.
During the interdisciplinary minor, students are enlightened about the socio-economic issues concerning lasting activities (rural, urban and industrial areas). The minor introduces the tools for geographic analysis, hydrology simulation and sedimentary transport essential to draw territorial development schemes like impact studies or river rehabilitation.

  • Develop and optimise processes to decontaminate and to restore the environment (water, soils, air) damaged by human activities.
  • Manage territorial development projects in the fields of the hydrology of natural and urban environments, the waste and pollutions, the restoration of industrial sites.
  • Choose and/or arbitrate the technical choices in equipment, arrangement, methods while having in mind the environmental regulations and the economic and social contexts.
  • Know how to analyse and manage the sanitary and environmental risks.
  • Work in interdisciplinary teams and networks.
