This department offers a rigorous interdisciplinary program characterized by a strong emphasis on professional development. In the curriculum design, our focus extends beyond the cultivation of foundational skills to encompass specialized domains, including "Sustainable Environmental Planning and Green Building Design" and "Water and Soil Resource Management and Ecological Engineering," with a subsequent emphasis on cross-domain comprehensive applications.

Within the integrated curriculum component, the program adeptly synthesizes core principles from diverse academic disciplines, thereby extending their practical utility within the context of environmental sustainability. We aim to instill a profound appreciation for the significance of professional integration in the application of knowledge and skills, facilitated by our esteemed faculty. For instance, in the domains of biotechnology and pollution control, we apply fundamental biological principles such as metabolism and reproduction to address pollutant degradation and environmental restoration. Stream ecology, situated within the framework of fluid mechanics, integrates mechanics related to erosion, sediment transport, and deposition to develop models that support sustainable ecological development. Moreover, environmental statistics and risk assessment leverage advanced data analysis and statistical techniques to evaluate variations in environmental quality and potential risks to both human and ecological systems. The study of biodiversity and ecological conservation necessitates a comprehensive analysis, weaving together expertise in biology, ecology, environmental science, and pollution control.

Furthermore, our department offers a structured approach to specialization through seven distinct areas of expertise, departing from traditional divergent course listings in favor of a modular framework. Each specialized area comprises 4 to 5 carefully selected professional courses, which guide students systematically through the exploration of interdisciplinary knowledge. This approach fosters the cultivation of a robust foundation of diverse knowledge and soft skills, positioning students favorably for future career development. Upon successful completion of the specialized area courses, students are eligible to receive professional field certification, and this accomplishment is duly noted on their graduation certificate.
Learning transition Map

Our department's curriculum emphasizes a clear thematic progression and interconnectedness between courses:

  • In the freshman year, students undertake foundational and experimental courses such as General Physics, General Chemistry, and General Biology. These courses serve not only to establish a solid foundation for advanced coursework but also to guide students in recognizing their own strengths and characteristics.
  • In the sophomore year, students take advanced foundational courses like Engineering Mathematics, Engineering Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Environmental Chemistry, and Hydrology. These courses assist students in developing the prerequisite knowledge required for understanding hydrology, water resources, ecological environments, and engineering-related subjects. Moreover, these advanced foundational courses facilitate understanding the integrated relationship between human society and ecological environments.
  • In the junior year, students not only delve into specialized subjects such as Ecological Engineering, Environmental Systems Analysis, Soil Mechanics, and Channel Hydraulics but also begin applying the knowledge acquired in previous years to solve practical problems.

In the senior year, there are no mandatory courses. Instead, students can participate in elective courses in Special Research Projects and Internships. Through engagement in various projects, students define their future capabilities and ignite their creative potential.
