From the Desk of Director
Welcome to the Institute of Water and Environment (IWE) at Dhaka University of Engineering & Technology (DUET), Gazipur, a postgraduate institute that dedicates to generate advanced knowledge and meeting the emerging challenges in the water and environmental sectors. The institute aims to resolve the forthcoming critical problems walking along with the different pathways, encouraging our research and academic team, and having discussed with participants from diverse disciplines.
We’re in such a temporal position in our history when meeting resource demands, controlling and reversing environmental degradation are among our most important challenges. The Institute focuses on how the knowledge of the environment gained through research can be employed in engineering, natural sciences, and social sciences to avail in balancing our resource needs and protect the environment. IWE is aspirant to demonstrate its capability of resolving critical issues by fostering links among the multidirectional human thought and action in unprecedented collaborations.
To make all the initiatives fruitful, it is surely needed to explore the way of working together within interdisciplinary teams on engineering, social, economic, legal, and technical aspects of problems. The Institute looks for the engagement of members of the faculty, postgraduate students, and research fellows from various disciplines at DUET along with partners from other universities, industries, non-governmental organizations, and government agencies in our enterprise. IWE conducts academically rigorous works and fosters real-world advice to the sectors where decisions must be made, regulations must be established, and policies must be implemented.
We invite you to explore our Institute and join us to embark on this exciting journey towards a more sustainable and resilient future.
