About

Based on the expertise of the faculty, the IEH focuses the teaching and research on the following fields: conventional environmental health, environmental health technology, environmental health management, environmental toxicology, and environmental epidemiology. The goal is to train students solidly on environmental health, disease prevention, and health promotion, either in research or in practice. The graduates are active in industry, government, as well as academia at the role of technicians, administers, or researchers.

The function of environmental health to disease prevention as well as health promotion evolves with the changes of the society. Upon the evolution, the IEH is pursuing close collaboration with other institutes, in addition to expanding faculty members and instrumentation. On the basis of health sciences, we are applying the state-of-the-art technology and management to prepare students for the demands of industry and government, which will ensure the students having great potential to plan and execute the work for environmental protection and sustainable development.

Studies of faculty/student presently concentrate on air pollution, water sanitation, bioaerosol, environmental toxicology, environmental epidemiology, environmental microbiology, industrial hygiene, physical environment and so on. Results are presented in relevant journals and conferences.


Goals for Education:
  • To train the students with professional abilities on environmental health sciences in theory and in practice, and to expand the visions of students in health ecology and global perspectives (MS)
  • To train the students with abilities and leadership to conduct environmental health researches in theory and in practice, and to expand the vision of students in health ecology and global perspectives (PhD)
