Pakistan, a developing country is presently on the pace of rural up gradation at par to

urbanization. Increasing population and industrial growth in turn result in an increase in
environmental pollution. Solutions to mitigate environmental pollution lie in the awareness and
proper techniques of environmental resources. Environmental Engineering is a key to identify,
monitor and control the environmental problems. In order to manage the environmental
problems trained and qualified manpower is required. The Environmental Engineering Program
at University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, provides an opportunity to train the existing manpower
and to provide fresh graduates having B.Sc. degree in the Environmental Engineering.
Some of the broad objectives of the program should be to equip students and future
environmental engineers with the ability to:
• Understand the concepts of the environment and pollution;
• To understand the linkage between environmental engineering and other relevant areas;
• To provide knowledge, skills and understandings of rapid evolution of environmental
problems, together with greater public awareness and concern;
• Acquire an overview of both development planning and environmental planning;
• Understand the need for the various actors and the public to participate in both
environmental planning and management of environmental health and gain an insight
into their respective roles in the participatory process;
• To provide confidence to bring the environmental problems at government and
management level;
• To help the controlling authorities to develop more credible environmental planning and
engineering systems;

• Establish a link between development, environmental planning and environmental

Faculty members from other departments would be invited at the university based on
contributing a clear complementary role in the Environmental Engineering Program. This
involves developing human capital resources in the knowledge-based economy which will bring
about the changes needed to cope with limited water and other natural resources. New
technologies for water quality assurance and environmental conservation would be a magnet for
locating knowledge-based industries in the region and thus foster economic development. The
main strength will be the consolidation of a critical mass of top scientists at the UAF for the
requisite synergistic activities in environmental engineering. Environmental engineering can
provide solutions to problems so as to accelerate basic environmental research into practice.
Furthermore, intensified multidisciplinary collaboration between scientists and engineers would
result in enhanced creativity.
The objective of this program is poverty eradication and environmental protection. The priority
of this program is to enhance the educational experiences of Pakistani students. Components of
this program are directly relevant both to the priorities of education and environmental
conservation. Firstly, the learning programs that take advantage of the natural resources present
in Pakistan will dramatically enhance the educational experience of Pakistani students, promote
personal development, and increase their levels of human capital.
Secondly, the focus on environmental education that is built into the educational program will
lead to, greater sense of awareness and responsibility in the students. The Pakistan government
in various policy instruments has strongly supported environmental education as an integral part
of a national environmental strategy. By combining environmental education with experiential
learning the most lasting changes in behavior can be achieved

• Skill will be in the graduating engineers for different type of food process

Principles of operations for the equipment used in processing industry and the response of
biological materials to these operations. Non-linear curve fitting, energy associated with food
freezing accounting for non-frozen water below the freezing point, flash evaporation, evaporated
cooling, pumps, high pressure system applications, effective temperature measurements to
account for radiation, simultaneous conduction, convection, heat transfer freezing time
predictions, reaction kinetics including acquisition and analysis of reaction rate data and use in
process optimization.

Activities for sterilization of fluids containing particulates; Training in vapor induced puffing for
producing crispy dried or baked food products; Training in application of supercritical fluids and
extrusion to generate unique food ingredients; Food industrial visits.
