Environmental Engineering

The Environmental Engineering Laboratories in the Department of Civil Engineering at LU provide excellent practical experience and research facilities. The research and courses regarding the environmental engineering aims to address the impact of human activities on the environment and design systems to provide safe water, air and land for human habitation. We have over 800 square feet of laboratory space including special areas and equipment for bench and pilot-scale research on water and wastewater treatment, contaminant transport and site remediation, refuse decomposition, anaerobic microbiology and analytical chemistry. The laboratory is supervised by a full-time Lab Technician.

Our research aims to address the impact of human activities on the environment and design systems to provide safe water, air and land for human habitation.
