What is Environmental Engineering?
Environmental Engineers look at the natural world and identify environmental problems, to develop effective solutions. They will also coordinate activities of various specialist groups – such as biologists, ecologists and geologists – within major projects.
Environmental Engineering has an emphasis on management, system design, water, geotechnical and transport engineering.
Environmental Engineering as part of your Diploma
UNSW Diploma students will gain hands-on experience in engineering design and programming in addition to learning the fundamentals of mathematics and physics. All discipline-specific diploma courses are equivalent to first year undergraduate courses but students receive added support and will also be equipped with academic and English skills. This will ensure students have a strong basis for their journey into second year at UNSW Sydney.
