Teaching and Learning

We aim to train our students in applying science and technology to the problems of environment protection. Besides the acquisition of professional knowledge, we also hope to educate students to be equipped with good employment ethics and skills. Therefore, the courses offered will integrate the acquisition of specialist knowledge with the development of positive attitudes in the workplace. In addition, in line with the trend toward internationalization in knowledge creation, our staff also collaborate actively with renowned universities from various countries, including the US, Japan, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Australia, and Barbados. By doing so, we hope to open up more opportunities for students to develop global perspectives.
