Env. & Safety Engineering

The Department runs a 4-Year Bachelor of Science Degreeprogrammein Environmental and Safety Engineering.   The aim of the Department is to provide a broad-basededucationand training in safety and environmental issues that will enablegraduatesto address environmental and safety engineering challenges inGhanaand elsewhere.
The programme is composed of taught courses, seminars, fieldtrips, report writing and laboratory work. The taught courses are assessed largely through quizzes, class tests, homework and an end of semester examination.The Curriculum aims at providing knowledge of the Practical and essential principles of water, soil and air management, Safety Management,Healthhazards, Hydrograph Analysis, water and air Modeling Systems, Waste Treatment Innovations and Engineering Economics.
Graduates of the Department will be equipped with the skill to identify, model and solve environmental and safety engineering problems.  Graduates will also be equipped with Methods of Controlling Hazards and Risk at work places.  They will also be able to know and prepare Energy-efficient Buildings and Design, Land use and Community Planning and Social Responsibility Strategies as well as be able to prepare and present engineering reports and apply relevant environmental principles to manage organizations and maintain cordial human relations.

The Department has strong academic staff with specialties in the fields of Environmental Chemistry, Environmental Process Engineering, Ergonomics and Stress Managements, OccupationalHealthand Safety, Meteorology, Risk Management and Hazard Control Systems.  Individual lecturers are heavily involved in research in their respective fields.
The Department is endowed with adequate laboratory facilities and resources to undertake research and outreach activities.  There exists contact with mining and allied industries that enable industrial attachments and fieldtrips to take place. Students are therefore always able to relate the practical with theory for effective understanding for a successful career.
