The Department of Environmental Sciences in the Faculty of Natural Resources began as an independent department with the admission of 40 undergraduate students in October 2007. The title for undergraduate degree as “Natural Resources and Environment Engineering” changed into “Environmental Science and Engineering” in 2016. In October 2008, the department succeeded in obtaining a license for the admission of master students in Environmental Engineering, and it started the admission the same year.
Since 2014, the admission of master students in Environmental Sciences has been extended to two areas; “Habitat and Biodiversity”, and “Environmental Pollution (Air, Soil, and Water)”. In the course of further development of educational levels in the department, a new area of study, labeled as “Spatial Planning Evaluation”, was added to the two previous areas in 2016. The department of Environmental Sciences also intends to admit PhD students in the three areas mentioned above by the end of 2018.
