Environmental Engineering Laboratory


The current context of environmental degradation in Bangladesh, especially pollution of the water courses, atmosphere throughout the country, raises the urgency of the proper addressing and mitigation of the issue. Hence, quantitative assessment of pollutants in water, air is of great importance to formulate the appropriate mitigation measures.

Environmental Engineering laboratory of MIST started its journey on 17 February 2008 as one of the promising environmental engineering laboratories of the country. The laboratory has the capacity of conducting experiments on surface water, ground water and waste water analysis. Currently a wide range of experiments on water and wastewater quality parameters (including heavy metals) are performed in the laboratory during the undergraduate sessional courses and postgraduate researches.

This laboratory is equipped with several advanced and sophisticated equipment to facilitate advance researches in environmental engineering fields. Moreover, the laboratory provides commercial testing as well as consultancy services in this arena.
