PhD in Environmental Engineering

National Central University

Graduate Institute of Environmental Engineering (GIEE) was expanded from the Environmental Engineering Division affiliated with the Department of Civil Engineering. Currently, we have 10 full-time faculty members, 12 adjunct professors, 185 graduate students, and over 613 alumni. We aim to train professionals to be capable of analysing and solving a wide range of environmental problems, to develop advanced, effective technologies and solutions for a sustainable environment and to assist the government and industry in building a green society and developing green production technologies, respectively.

Because of the multidisciplinary credentials of its faculty and the first-rate quality of its research facilities, the GIEE attracts high-caliber students from a variety of engineering and science disciplines. In return, the strong and unique engineering education received by the alumni has led the GIEE to attain a reputation for excellence from industry and government. With these efforts made in the past 20 years, the GIEE has become one of the most prestigious environmental institutes in Taiwan.
