About Environmental Engineering and Safety at work

The studies at the Department for Environmental Engineering at the Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad are divided into three degrees.  In addition, there are specialization studies, lasting one year (two semesters), worth 60 ECTS, including specialization thesis which is worth 12 ECTS.

First cycle studies - Undergraduate academic studies last 4 years (eight semesters) with possibility of  obtaining 240 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System),  including the final paper which is equivalent to 15 ECTS.
After the first year, students may choose between two study programmes:

   Environmental Engineering
   Safety at Work
   Risk Management of Catastrophic Events and Fire

Second cycle studies - Master Academic Studies, are the continuation of undergraduate studies, depending on the study programme last for 1 year (at least 60 ECTS credits), 1.5 years (90 ??TS credits) or 2 years (120 ECTS credits), being the continuation of the undergraduate academic studies. Master studies are awarded 60 ECTS, including master  thesis which is awarded 15 ECTS. After the completion of the second degree studies, student is awarded the maximum of 300 ECTS.

Third cycle studies - Doctoral Studies last three years (six semesters). Doctoral studies are awarded 180 ECTS, and after the completion, a  student obtains a total of 480 ECTS.

Department structure:

There are two Chairs at the Department - the Chair of Environmental Engineering and the Chair of Bio-system Engineering.
In accordance with Department activities, education, research and transfer of knowledge through scientific projects and cooperation with economy, industry, and public sector, issues in the field of environmental protection are generally classified into four groups:

1  Environmental Engineering
2  Environmental Management - ECO-Management
3  Risk Management
4  Engineering of Bio-systems

Research areas

• Design of environmental protection,
• Data analysis on the state of the environment,
• Alternative energy sources,
• Solid and Hazardous Waste
• Categorization of contaminants and pollutants,
• Air Pollution through persistent organic pollutants (POP)
• Managing natural disasters and accidents
• Information and technology support to sustainable development  of Bio-systems

Significant results

• Appointments and membership of our teachers in national and international expert teams.
• Over 100 published papers in international and national journals (papers presented at over 50 international and national symposia and congresses).• In December 2008, the first issue of KOMPAKT (the first magazine in the region  that covers the topics of waste management, modern approach to solving problems in this area, positive international experience and state of waste management in Serbia) was published by the Department of Environmental Engineering.

Current  research

• Analysis of the morphological composition and quantity of municipal waste in the Republic of Serbia
• Assessing the quality of strained-filtered  water on municipal waste landfills and determining the composition of landfill gas;
• Identification of pollutants and modelling the spread on the basis of key parameters;
• Developing a model study of the environment in the investment process;
• Detection of toxic substances, PCB's, dioxins and other persistent organic pollutants (POP's) generated during the war accidents in Serbia and the former Yugoslavia (international project with the Czech Republic, Austria and Slovenia),
• Control of flooding and vulnerability (UN cooperation with the University of Bonn)
• Harmonization of national legislation in the field of water quality and control with the EU standards (the international project with Slovakia).
