The Environmental Engineering and Science (EE&S) group within CEE at Illinois prepares students for the increasingly critical role of addressing the world’s challenges of air, land and water pollution. Sustainable engineering practices for both developed and developing societies are a primary focus of the EE&S program.

Through cooperation with colleagues in other countries, EE&S faculty members offer their students a global perspective on environmental engineering, as well as opportunities to travel and collaborate on research projects with international relevance. Collaborative programs are ongoing with colleagues in Asia, Latin America, and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Research interests of the EE&S faculty include:

  • Water disinfection
  • Environmental decision-making
  • Environmental management and policy analysis
  • Sustainable urban development
  • Aquatic ecology, aquatic ecosystem management
  • Water and air quality sensors and modeling
  • Environmental microbiology and genomics
  • Watershed modeling
  • Water reuse
  • Environmental biotechnology 
  • Microbial genomics
  • Groundwater contamination and remediation
  • Antibiotic resistance and treatment
  • Interactions between regional and global-scale air pollution
  • Resource recovery from wastewater
  • Developing world water sanitation and hygiene
  • Fate and transformation of micropollutants
  • Desalination
  • Soft matter inteforces
  • Indoor air pollution
  • Health effects of ambient particulate matter inhalation
