Studying Environmental Engineering in Turkey

Overview of Environmental Engineering:

One of the most important requirements in our time is to take care of human health and quality of living, and this can only be achieved by providing the right environment, hence  the need to engineer the environment.

Where the environmental engineering major is a branch of civil engineering, chemical engineering and mechanical engineering, where it teaches several topics such as chemistry, ecology, biology, hydraulics, geology, hydrology, sports and others,

This specialization works on the use of engineering and scientific applications to serve and protect the environment and to produce solutions that will protect living organisms, increase environmental quality, control pollution, diversify and increase energy and its sources to the highest extent possible.

The environmental engineer's interests include other topics such as the water sector, quality control, soil conservation from pollution, pollutant management, and urban planning.

The environment is defined as three types: the biological environment that contains living organisms such as animals, plants and bacteria, the social environment that contains all matters related to human industries and their impact on the environment or the impact of the environment on it, and finally the natural environment, which includes the elements that surround humans from soil, water and air.

Advantages of studying environmental engineering in Turkey:

Environmental engineering, which is based on the use of engineering applications to protect and serve the environment, is one of the most important and best majors taught in the whole world and in Turkey, especially where Turkish certificates have high value and local and international recognition. In addition to the fact that Turkish universities have made a great qualitative leap and remarkable development in the fields of education in general and engineering fields in particular because of the great importance they have attached to them and the centers, laboratories and modern equipment they have also provided to them with the aim of educating, training and qualifying students to integrate into the labor market directly and with the highest efficiency.

Among the advantages of studying environmental engineering in Turkey in particular:

  • Provides the best technologies and modern equipment in the laboratories of engineering colleges.

  • The scientific and research leap achieved by Turkey and its universities in the engineering fields in particular.
