Environmental Fluids

Environmental Fluids

The Environmental Fluids specialisation explores areas relating to environmental solutions to man-made problems, ocean and coastal engineering, water resources and hydrology and environmental geotechnics.

Environmental engineers are concerned with protecting the environment by assessing the impact a project has on the air, water, soil and noise levels in its vicinity. They define and document long term problems that may be caused by accidents, such as oil spills.
