Overview

This field of engineering is an emerging sector for the betterment of the future. It is the study of building and operating systems that use energy and resources sustainably, hence not exhausting the precious resources and compromise with the natural environment alongwith the future generations to survive.

Some of the focuses on sustainable engineering are –

  • Water supply
  • Industrial processing
  • Food production
  • Energy development
  • Housing and shelter
  • Development of natural resources
  • Sanitation and waste management
  • Transportation

 

The field deals with interactions between technical, ecological, social and economical systems Climate change, polluted related diseases have led to development in sustainable engineering. This can also be termed as Green Engineering and it also focuses on

  • Waste reduction
  • Materials management
  • Pollution prevention
  • Product enhancement

Over the years there were many courses launched to learn engineering in sustainable development and develop new systems and machines in the industries. It requires an interdisciplinary approach in all aspects of engineering. Even in other engineering course, the element of sustainability should be included to improve the quality of life for all. The UNESCO Engineering Initiative (UEI) is working with their clients to develop engineering syllabus that incorporate sustainability as an overarching theme. 

Courses in Sustainable Engineering

The courses in sustainable engineering include subjects like mathematics, chemistry, geography, technology, biology, economics, and some other engineering subjects.

The duration of the bachelor’s degree is same as other engineering courses i.e. 4 years. Students also learn about fluid mechanics, heat transfer, engineering thermodynamics, fundamentals of process engineering and introductory chemistry. They can also go for M.Tech courses in the same field.

Some universities abroad give you the chance to work in the industry for over a year and gain efficient experience. With an increasing demand in sustainable development and more and more people getting aware for the same have led to numerous amount of courses across the world.

Top Universities for Sustainable engineering / environmental engineering

Some of the top universities are

  • Stanford University
  • University of California – Berkeley
  • University of Illinois – Urbana – Champaign

  • University of Michigan – Ann Arbor
  • Cornell University
  • John Hopkins University
  • Purdue University - Lafayette
  • University of Colarado – Boulder.

Scholarships for Sustainable engineering

There are a number of scholarships available for environmental engineering courses, let us list some of them

  • The Ernest F Hollings Undergraduate Scholarship Program – this is sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It is usually given to the undergraduate students for the course with award upto $8000 and a paid internship.
  • The Environmental Protection Agency offers both graduate and undergraduate research fellowships of around $74,000 to cover the student’s research costs, tuition etc. The undergraduates are also eligible to receive $17,500 with a paid internship.

Top Colleges for Sustainable Engineering

  • The University of Texas at Arlington give several annual scholarships to the students for this course. The award amounts range from $2,000 to $10,000
  • The University of Florida’s Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences offer number of fellowships and scholarships for the same.
