The Bachelor of Technology in Environmental Engineering program was launched in Kathmandu University in 2005 as an interdisciplinary and timely field of study to bridge the gap between Science and Engineering.
Bachelor of Technology in Environmental Engineering focuses on the basic understanding of the environmental problems and their mitigation through appropriate and environmentally friendly technologies. The student will acquire knowledge and skill of Environmental Engineering which is designed to develop human resources in the areas of economic development, improvement and transfer of appropriate technologies, the abatement of pollution and minimization of the environmental risk of development works by using environment friendly technologies and engineering methods.
The classes are held at the Department of Environmental Science and Engineering, School of Science, Kathmandu University, Dhulikhel. The university is located on a hilltop with 17 hectares of land, 28 km east of the capital. The peaceful environment and panoramic view of Himalayan range are unique site characteristics that are conducive to a healthy atmosphere for learning.
