Purpose: Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve. Graduates can analyze and solve complex problems. Graduates can apply their knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, the humanities and social sciences to analyze and solve complex problems in environmental engineering. Graduates can evaluate, mitigate, and communicate risk. Graduates can use appropriate technologies to formulate effective, context-based courses of action adapt methods and strategies to overcome incomplete or imperfect information and recommend or choose a best course of action. Graduates can creatively adapt problem solving strategies and solutions to rapidly changing situations. Problem solving is not bounded by disciplinary expertise. Graduates can lead, manage, and exe-cute. Graduates can lead people, manage resources and programs, prioritize activities, and ute projects within constraints to successfully complete the mission within the environmental field. Graduates must be able to ute an array of missions efficiently while minimizing environmental impacts. Graduates can effectively communicate. Graduates have the ability to listen to, understand, and assess varying viewpoints and can, based on this assessment, communicate pertinent information to stakeholders and the general public in such a manner as to bridge their differences and strengthen relationships among them. Graduates recognize their roles as professionals. Graduates have internalized their professional responsibilities to society and the practice of engineering. They demonstrate internalization through participation in professional societies, continuing education, successful progression in assignments, community outreach, and other activities.

Vision: Departments vision is providing a program that is reputable and well-known and to have success in national and international arena and to take place in upper levels in environmental engineering education and to access to modernity in order to contribute environmental science and technology standards.

Mission: Our mission is to prepare our students to become professionals equipped with the ability of analytical thinking and problem solving beside knowledge and design skills to succeed in competitive engineering. So, our graduates would be passionate, creative, enterprising and aware of life-time learning, able to use modern instruments in Environmental Engineering practices and a preferred engineer in its area, as individuals engaged with responsability to protect their profession, behaving accordingly to ethical measures, considering health and security.
