Slide background

The School of Environmental Engineering has recently changed its name to Chemical and Environmental Engineering to reflect the capacity of the School to offer two distinct Diplomas to our graduates, i.e., "Chemical Engineering" or "Environmental Engineering" depending on the option chosen by our students at the end of the 2nd year of their studies.

The Chemical and Environmental Engineering School's (CHENVENG) mission is to train engineers with high qualifications and skills and provide the necessary background for them to deal with and serve the country's scientific process and market activities. 

The graduates of the School of CHENVENG, upon completion of their studies, receive the Diploma of Chemical and Environmental Engineering School with Advanced Semester Direction (article 75, §1, L4589 / 2019), which corresponds to either "Chemical Engineering" or "Environmental Engineering" expertise depending on the Direction that they follow at the end of their 2nd year of study. 

The two offered Diplomas are equivalent, and they correspond to the Diplomas of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Engineering provided by other Greek universities and therefore have the respective professional rights. 

The students of the Chemical and Environmental Engineering School are trained, acquire skills and deal with cutting-edge technologies such as: 

  • Design and development of chemical and biochemical processes. 
  • Restructuring and reengineering of production and processing of industrial facilities. 
  • Design, construction, and operation of treatment plants for wastewater, gaseous emissions, municipal waste, toxic and hazardous waste. 
  • Management of air pollution, surface and groundwater pollution, systems for measuring air, water, soil remediation, and groundwater remediation. 
  • Design and implementation of management programs for the natural and built environment (measurement, monitoring, evaluation).
  • Study of hydraulic works, hydrogeology and groundwater, as well as water resources management.
  • Development and improvement of value-added chemicals and products of a broad or specialized application. 
  • Materials/nanomaterials technology with environmental, biochemical, and energy applications. 
  • Sustainable exploitation of natural resources and enhanced utilization of fossil fuels/biofuels. 
  • Production, conversion, energy efficiency, and development of near-zero or zero-carbon footprint energy cycles. 
  • Elaboration and control of natural or anthropogenic environmental impact assessment programs, technical projects, or other activities.
