Our goal is to contribute to the sustainable and peaceful development by organizing educational activities, together with the faculty and students. Our innovative curriculum is designed to solve today’s most challenging environmental problems. Here education is not limited to the classroom. Our students receive a robust education and experience, which includes inter-professional, innovative learning opportunities, as well as the chance to go beyond the classroom with industrial and real-world exposure through industrial training in fourth semester.
