GIEE actively promotes interdisciplinary research that involves researchers from various academic fields. Academic and research development emphasizes on the fields of water quality control, air quality management, solid wastes treatment, environmental planning and management, environmental conservation, efficient uses of resources and energy, and environmental quality monitoring and assessment.
We are dedicated to foster environmental engineering education and research, and strengthening collaboration between multidisciplinary to enhance both quantity and quality of research, in order to attend world-class standards as well as domestic leadership.
We strive to provide the highest quality of education by constantly improving course curricular, cultivating both fundamentals and specializations, promoting ethics and social responsibility, as well as international vision and interdisciplinary leadership, to produce outstanding environmental engineers and researchers who can tackle the environmental problems we are currently facing.
1. Specialization and Generalization:
We are in the process of strengthening the faculty, staff, and research facilities, not only in the field of water pollution control but also in air pollution control and solid waste management. This goal can be achieved by inviting distinguished overseas scholars from various disciplines to give lectures and seminars and to conduct research programs. We will enhance useful environmental management programs in decision making, planning, construction, control, and enforcement of environmental protection.
2. Interdepartmental and International Cooperation:
Environmental engineering is a highly diversified field of science and technology. We plan to become affiliated with related graduate schools, departments, and research centers from various universities and institutes.
Without practical applications, the knowledge and technology developed by an academic institution are limited to the classroom. Cooperation between industries and universities is beneficial to both sides. Universities need support from the industrial sector to conduct research projects, and industries require the applicable technology developed by universities to solve their problems. Only through this joint effort will the conservation of our environment become possible.
4. Research Center for Environmental Pollution Prevention and Control:
This Center consists of five research divisions: Instrumental Laboratory, Wastes Minimization and Resources Recovery and Utilization Laboratory, Water and Waste Water Treatment and Advanced Oxidation Technology Laboratory, Environmental Nano-technology Laboratory, and Clean Production and Industrial Ecology Laboratory. The center not only provides services for the research cooperation with government and non-government organizations, industries, and research and academic institutes, but also enhances our educational and research capabilities.
