Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper covers skills, knowledge and capability for environmental engineers so they can understand, investigate and evaluate environmental engineering problems and solutions. The purpose of this paper is to furnish environmental engineers with the skills, knowledge and understanding of the range of environmental issues covering air, water, wastewater, storm water, waste, soil and noise. This paper is needed to deliver the skills, technical and process capabilities expected of an environmental engineer to be able to investigate, understand and evaluate environmental problems and potential solutions.

The learning outcomes for this paper are linked to Washington Accord graduate attributes WA1-WA11. Explanation of the graduate attributes can be found at: https://www.ieagreements.org/
