Engineering, Duebendorf (Switzerland)
Federal Institute for Aquatic Science and Technology) is closely associated
with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) and is internationally
among the leading multidisciplinary institutes in aquatic science and
technology. It is well equipped and occupies over 170 permanent staff
members from natural, social and engineering sciences. Together with over
150 additional scientific collaborators (Master students, 90 doctoral
students, post doctoral fellows) this creates a lively scientific environment.
EAWAG's task as the national research centre for water pollution control
is to ensure that concepts and technologies pertaining to the use of natural
waters are continuously improved. EAWAG is actively involved in the 'Alliance
for Global Sustainability' (ETH, MIT, Tokyo University).
of Environmental Engineering of EAWAG includes experts from
process engineering, systems analysis, urban hydrology and water resources
management. It has a pronounced expertise in integrated analysis of urban
water management and plays an internationally leading role in modelling
of biological processes in wastewater treatment. The department has a
major impact in the introduction of new technologies in the area of urban
discharge as well as in wastewater and drinking water treatment in Switzerland.
In recent years, the department has taken up the topic of sustainable
urban water management. This involves conceptual work as well as the development
of specific methodologies and technologies.
