The department of Environmental Technology Engineering (ETE) was launched in 2011 as a step towards achieving the vision of Palestine Polytechnic University “The University of Science and Technology and Global Innovation”. The program aims at graduating engineers with solid knowledge in environmental engineering, science and technology to protect the environment and to be aware of all pollution causes and the technologies applied in treating and managing the wastes and effluents.  The program is composed of 162 credit hours spread over 5 academic years (10 semester). The curricula is well formulated to cover all environmental aspects including water quality, municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, design of wastewater treatment plants, air pollution and control, global warming and climate change, soil contamination  and remediation, environmental legislation and management as well as environmental impact assessment. Upon graduation, the graduates of this program will be well equipped theoretically and practically to pursue their career in a professional and ethical manner that satisfy their employers. The graduates are expected to be employed at different public and private sectors including ministries, municipalities, water authority, and environmental quality authority, environment health department, civil defense NGO’s, research centers and groups, wastewater treatment plants, food, chemical and water treatment industries.


The Program educates students to think critically, communicate clearly, and collaborate effectively as they apply the fundamental scientific principles of engineering to environmental problems. We emphasize the importance of intellectual growth, professional ethics, and service to society. Our graduates are prepared to be successful engineering professionals in private and governmental organizations, and students in the best graduate programs.

Students graduating with a B.S. in Environmental Technology Engineering will have demonstrated the ability to:

  1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. Design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
