The Division for Water and Environmental Engineering conducts research and education to increase knowledge and improve the use of natural and technical systems for managing water, land and geological resources.
By using modern laboratory, field and modelling methods, the division develops new understanding and innovative technical solutions for a more sustainable future. The pilot-scale laboratory facilities at Hammarby Sjöstadsverket are used for some of the research and education.
Challenged by contemporay sustainability issues, focus is on addressing sustanability problems and opportunities with high social relevance and spreading results for both academic and applied use.
The working methods are interdisciplinary and based on collaboration with the private and public sector and stakeholders at all levels; from partners to end users.
