Doctoral Program in Environmental Science and Engineering


Professional Name: Environmental Science and Engineering

Subject code: 083000

Four years of schooling

Tuition: 41,000 yuan / year



The environmental science and engineering discipline of Tongji University is the dominant discipline developed by Tongji University, and it is one of the emerging disciplines that are key development in the national "211 Project " and the " Ministry of Education Action Plan for the Promotion of Education ( 985 Project) ". The first batch of environmental engineering master's programs was established in 1981, the first batch of environmental engineering doctoral programs was established in 1984, the post-doctoral mobile station was established in 1985, and the doctoral degree in environmental science and engineering was awarded in 2000. In 2017, it was selected as a " double first-class " construction. Subject. According to the 2019 " ranking of world-class disciplines of Shanghai Science and Technology", Tongji University's environmental science and engineering ranks 36th in the world.

Environmental science and engineering is a science and engineering interdisciplinary subject. Aiming at the problems of environmental pollution and ecological destruction in my country, it aims at the major needs of the sustainable development of society and economy, focusing on environmental pollution chemistry and pollution ecology, water pollution control theory and technology, and solid waste treatment. And resource utilization, environmental restoration and watershed pollution control, air pollution control and source reduction, and environmental planning and management.
