ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT

The department of Environmental Engineering has its roots in public health engineering (PHE). The PHE course was offered from 1981 to 1989 by the Department of Public Health Engineering, which is the predecessor of the current Environmental Engineering Department. The department as well as the pertinent course came into being as a reaction by the Government of Tanzania against deteriorating urban infrastructure between 1973 and 1982. The poor urban infrastructure services were noted to endanger public health and this notion was attested by a major cholera epidemic in the 1970s. The profession was also a way of operationalising the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (IDWSSD) of 1980 - 1990.

The department offers two undergraduate programmes and two three postgraduate programmes.

The undergraduate programme offered include;

  1. BSc. Environmental Engineering
  2. BSc. Municipal and Industrial Services Engineering

The postgraduate programmes include

  1. Postgraduate Diploma in Environmental Technology and Management
  2. MSc of Environmental Technology and Management
  3. And PhD in Environmental Technology and Management

The training philosophy is also in line with the current thinking that focuses on moving away from the end-of-pipe treatment, to enhancing waste minimization and pollution prevention as well as sustainable environmental management and development.

Teaching is organized in themes. Each semester has a main theme and the subjects taught are related to that theme. In each semester except the eighth semester, students are required to do a project related to the theme. In the first three semesters, more time is devoted to theory, but as students proceed to succeeding semesters, the amount of time devoted to Fieldwork increases accordingly. The eighth semester is totally devoted to the final year dissertation

The graduates should be capable of self-employment as practitioners in any aspect of environmental engineering. They can provide services in training and research, water treatment and supply, environmental building services engineering, wastewater treatment and disposal, cleaner production and waste minimization, and air quality management. Also, they can work in solid waste management with a focus on technology needs: environmental laboratory services, urban drainage, flood mitigation and irrigation, resource recovery and reuse, industrial hygiene, occupational health and safety, and engineering control of communicable diseases. They are also expected to serve alongside other professionals at various levels of responsibilities. Furthermore, they are supposed to possess knowledge and skills to implement environmentally sound management of land development projects.

Direct Entry qualification

One of the following combinations of passes in the Advanced Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (A.C.S.E.E.) or equivalent.

MSc. ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT 

History and justification of the programme

The need for M.Sc. ETM was envisaged in the year 2007 following the establishment of the School of Environmental Science and Technology (SEST). The M.Sc. ETM was conceived as appropriate for the school as it is directly connected to the core theme of environments and its managerial aspects. It has also come to add value to Ardhi University's mission, vision and contribute towards its Corporate Strategic Plan.

The program M.Sc. Environmental Technology and Management is designed to equip students with a set of knowledge and skills which will enable them to solve a wide-range of environmental engineering challenges. The course covers municipal and toxic waste management, process emissions, contaminated land and water and waste disposal. The programme also addresses energy and resource recovery from waste materials. This was done following demand for professional career opportunities in the country' growing environmental problems as the result of expansion in economic activities and their related activities. In order to attain sustainable economic development, all the consequences of the developmental project need to be mitigated, using Best Practices. This programme is planned to equip students with such skills to manage all sorts of consequences. The skills that need to be imparted to students include research methods, wastewater treatment design, environmental chemistry, environmental biotechnology, Soil pollution, solid waste management, air pollution control hazardous waste management and minimization and control. These were done in 2005 (Refer to tracer study report by Ardhi University (by the then UCLAS) in 2005).

 Graduates of M.SC. ETM Programme are expected to have abilities;

  1.  Employ the principles, techniques and procedures of Good Environmental Practice in solving environmental problems.
  2. Apply advanced concepts of fundamental sciences and engineering to identify, formulate, and solve complex water and environmental engineering problems, and understand the impact of    such solutions on sustainable development.
  3. Apply advanced concepts of fundamental sciences and engineering to identify, formulate, and solve complex water and environmental engineering problems, and understand the impact of     such solutions on sustainable development.
  4. Use an advanced and rigorous approach to the design and execution of experiments, and to the analysis and interpretation of experimental data.
  5. Apply advanced concepts of water and environmental engineering and fundamental sciences to design, analyze, and develop technologies, processes or systems to meet desired needs of society, both, professionally and ethically.
  6. Be knowledgeable of contemporary issues and research challenges/opportunities related to water and environmental engineering, and engage in lifelong learning to keep abreast of such issues.
  7. Use advanced techniques, skills, and modern scientific and engineering tools for problems related to professional practice in the field of water and environmental engineering; and
  8. Communicate effectively and professionally in written and oral form, both, individually and as a member of a multidisciplinary team.
