Environmental Technology for Sustainable Development provides an introduction to research and development leading to technologies that address environmental problems. You will learn to interact with stakeholders, managers and policy makers for appropriate remedial actions.
Over the last decade many developing countries have witnessed rapid economic growth rates of near double digits and the average population grew at the rate of 1.8% every year in the Asian region.
Due to the rapid population growth, industrialisation and urbanisation, many environmental issues such as wastewater treatment and management, solid waste, air pollution and industrial and hazardous waste treatment and management have been brought to the forefront.
As a result, finding sustainable solutions for environmental issues without compromising economic development has become a vital issue for the developing nations, as addressed in Target 9 of the MDGs.
To address these issues, the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) and UNESCO-IHE agreed to establish the Joint Double Degree Program in Environmental Technology for Sustainable Development. Aim of the program is to provide students the opportunity to learn, share knowledge, and gain hands-on experiences in both developed and developing nations.
Introduction Environmental Science (natural processes; Human Dimensions; Analytical tools); Hazardous waste handling, Air Pollution and Waste gas treatment, Cleaner Production, Industrial wastewater treatment; Environmental Engineering; Nanotechnology for water and wastewater treatment; Solid Waste Management; Bioremediation.
Environmental Technology for Sustainable Development aims to provide an integrated course for scientists, technologists and engineers who have an interest in research and development for sustainable development. They will acquire knowledge and skills to address environmental problems and interact with stakeholders, managers and policy makers to develop and implement appropriate remedial actions for environmental pollution.
