The department provides research and teaching in fields of ever-increasing social importance. On the background there are the global trends like climate change, urbanization and increasing consumption of raw materials.
A functional community needs effective water, wastewater and waste management, sufficient water resources, smooth and safe transportation connections, environmentally friendly construction and maintenance of infrastructure, sustainable geo- and rock engineering and high level planning and research skills in development of urban structure and environment.
