Introduction

Water, as an engineering subject, is very special. Water will be supplied until the last day history is recorded and this is the future of the Department of Environmental Systems Engineering. The Department of Environmental Systems Engineering of Sejong Campus has been tasked specifically with solving the problems of water environment in the water cycle by applying engineering methods. Education, experiment, practice and academic research are conducted in the following areas: environmental water resource research, advanced water treatment turning water to drinking water, advanced wastewater treatment, treatment and disposal of wastes and sludge, and practical solutions in the enormous water cycle covering soil and underground water pollution. All of these activities are aimed at discovering practical solutions for conserving the environment.

As the properties of contaminants become more diverse, our environment is threatened not only by typical contaminants, but also by toxic and hazardous substances and endocrine disrupters. Also, recycling and reuse of resources are the core technological requirements in Environmental Systems Engineering. In recent times, the demand for energy-efficient, compact, and hybrid technology is rapidly increasing, changing the direction of education and research. Hence, Environmental Systems Engineering is rapidly evolving as a complex convergence technology covering IT and BT, and the department concentrates on development of high-class human resources and researchers.

Major education and research areas of the Department of Environmental Systems Engineering include conservation and development of water resources, advanced treatment of wastewater, research into methods of disposal of byproducts (sludge) arising from water treatment, advanced treatment for drinking water and soil and underground water conservation. In the process, various related basic sciences will be required. Graduates from the Department of Environmental Systems Engineering work as engineers for large construction firms or environment-related professional consulting firms, or as environment-related public officials. They also work with public corporations and research agencies. Many graduates of undergraduate courses further their studies at graduate schools that provide master's or doctoral courses.
