The Department of Environmental Science and Engineering (DESE) is a pioneer department of the School of Science, Kathmandu University which started few programs first in Nepal. As such graduate study program Master of Technology (M. Tech.) in Environmental Engineering was started in 2016.
With the rise in haphazard development processes, we risk irrecoverable damage to our environment through urgent and pervasive problems like pollution and impact of the built environment. Hence, this program aims to equip the students with a sound knowledge-base of technical and engineering principles to assess and eliminate the environmental pollution in the environmental media, viz., air water and soil.
