Instituições de Ensino:
The Doctoral Program in Environmental Engineering emphasizes a multidisciplinary advanced and comprehensive approach to the diagnosis, prevention and resolution of environmental problems of any kind. The students will develop their thesis research in any of the departments at FEUP since the first year, under the orientation of a supervisor. The research in the program focus on fundamental understanding of the basic chemical, physical, biological and technological processes underlying environmental engineering problems.
FIELDS OF SPECIALIZATION
Areas of research specialization include, in a non-exhaustive list, the phenomenological understanding of any kind of physical, chemical or biological processes that affect the quality of any environmental compartment (surface water or groundwater, surface, atmosphere and biota) or respective sub-compartment, as well as the introduction of new industrial practices (green engineering, environmental nanotechnology, industrial ecology) or the problems of water resources, sanitation, water supply and coastal environments in addition to the study of relationships between public health, engineering and sustainability.
