ENVE Graduate Programs
Marmara University Environmental Engineering
The aim of the environmental engineering program is to develop leaders who can use their acquired skills to manage and solve complex environmental problems in natural and engineering systems. The instructional program is designed to develop strong analytical, design, and management capabilities in the application of biological, chemical and physical processes.
EE focuses on developing the next generation of leaders for the engineering profession, for academia, and for applying engineering methods in the broader societal context. EE conducts cutting-edge research, defining what constitutes the evolving domain of environmental engineering. This research develops theory and understanding as well as tools and techniques for professional practice and for solving some of the most challenging problems stemming from the interaction between the built and natural environments. Studying at Marmara means learning and helping to develop innovative ways to address these problems by taking advantage of a breadth of increasingly interdependent disciplines.
Research focuses on design of water and wastewater treatment plants, biological nutrient removal, filtration, advanced oxidation processes, mathematical modeling and computer applications in chemical and environmental engineering, liquid-solid fluidization, filter backwash hydraulics, porous media hydraulics, air pollution, climate change, membrane applications in wastewater treatment, Disinfection by-products, hazardous waste management, anaerobic fermentation/digestion, solid waste management, bio-electrochemical systems (Microbial Fuel Cells), composting, water reuse, anaeorobic ammonium oxidation (Anammox) process, soil remediation, bioplastic production (PHA) in activated sludge systems, adsorption and ion exchange in Environmental Engineering, microbial interactions in mixed treatment systems, bio-electrochemical processes, molecular microbiological techniques (polymerase chain reaction, PCR), denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE), fluorescent in-situ hybridization (FISH).
