College of Engineering

Department of Environmental Engineering

Introduction

The Department of Environmental Engineering was the first of its kind to be established in the Daegu and Gyeongbuk areas in 1985.

After graduating its first students in 1989, a total of 1,500 graduated up to 2013. Master and doctoral degrees have been offered in the graduate school since 1989 and 1993, respectively.

Furthermore, in order to respond to the social trends in which demands for environmental engineer experts grew rapidly from 1994, the total number of spaces for students in the undergraduate course was increased from 40 to 120. Recently, the number of students in the undergraduate course was adjusted to 70 since 2010. Thus, this department has past its infancy in setting its foundation in education, and is now in its growth stage for development in both quality and quantity aspects. Moreover, with the increasing awareness of environmental pollution, the importance of environmental engineering as a high-tech academic scholarship has come further into the limelight.

  • Foster healthy people based on the principle of respect for humans pursued by environmental engineering
  • Understanding of basic principles related to environmental engineering and foster technical development
  • Foster research manpower and experts in the environmental engineering field
  • Train qualities to serve the local community by acquiring expert skills

History

There are currently 1,500 graduates in undergraduate schools, 200 masters and 40 PhDs who play pivotal roles in the national development from various different social levels.
