General

Program Description

Master in Environmental Engineering and Management (EEM)

Environmental Engineering and Management (EEM) at AIT began in 1964 with the need for sanitary engineering to address the problems of providing adequate water supplies and sanitation facilities. The overall program looks for solutions to environmental problems including wastewater treatment and disposal systems; air pollution engineering and management; solid and hazardous wastes; waste minimization and life cycle assessment; environmental impact assessment and management; and environmental toxicology. The three major focal areas are Environmental Technology and Management (ETM); Environmental Toxicology, Technology and Management (EETM); and Water and Wastewater Engineering (WWE).

The EEM has produced over 1,100 master and 90 Ph.D. graduates from 40 countries in Asia and beyond. ETM emphasizes a systems approach to managing the environment, including the interrelated roles of industry and government agencies. Some of the subjects covered in the specialization of air pollution, solid wastes, industrial pollution control, hazardous wastes control and minimization, environmental impact assessment and waste audits. ETTM is a multidisciplinary inter-university program (Chulabhorn Research Institute, Mahidol University, and AIT) with assistance from a team of international experts.

This program is a combination of toxicology and other related health sciences, biotechnology and environmental engineering. WWE responds to the need to produce engineers who have specialized in the planning, design, operation, and management of water supply, wastewater treatment, and disposal systems. Specializations include water supply and sewerage system engineering, water quality management, water and wastewater treatment systems, environmental sanitation systems, groundwater contamination, waste recycling and resource recovery, natural and ecological treatment systems.

The School of Environment, Resources, and Development (SERD) established in 1993 by amalgamating the Divisions of Agriculture and Food Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Human Settlements and Energy Technology, is now composed of ten fields of study - Agricultural Systems and Engineering, Aquaculture and Aquatic Resources Management, Food Engineering and Bioprocess Technology, Energy, Environmental Engineering and Management, Pulp and Paper Technology, Gender and Development Studies, Natural Resources Management, Regional and Rural Development Planning and Urban Environmental Management. MISSION AIT's mission is "to develop highly qualified and committed professionals who will play a leading role in the sustainable development of the region and its integration into the global economy". AIT will serve the human resource development needs of developing countries in Asia taking into account their specific development priorities, gender issues, and social values.SERD activities and function will be within this framework, as a majority of its graduates return and participate in the development goals of their countries. Those who pursue their doctoral degrees increase their professional skills and qualifications. VISION SERD responds to regional needs by mobilizing and enhancing capacities for socially, economically and environmentally sound development in partnerships with public and private sectors. The School's interdisciplinary approach integrates technological, natural and social sciences.The School will continue its leadership role in offering excellent academic programs relevant to regional needs and responsive to students' interests. the research will be concentrated toward focal areas and are to be conducted by core teams. outreach will be community-service-oriented. will be consolidated and financially viable. The School activities including the students, staff, faculty, and curricula, will be subject to quality assessment. Read less
