The international community will be able to continue growth, achieve sustainability, and harmonize its requirements between both energy and climate.Environmental policy of College of Engineering:The policy of environmental sustainability is an important part of the modern vision of our renewable university, University of Mosul in general and College of Engineering in particular. Where the environmental policy of College of Engineering is based on several axes, the most important of which are:
1. Educating the students and faculty members about the concept of environmental sustainability.
2. Presenting pioneering projects in the field of sustainability through holding periodic conferences and seminars on environmental pollution in our Arab countries and countries of the world and ways to treat or reduce it.
3. Encouraging students and faculty members to conduct scientific research on issues related to sustainability.
4. Trying to find appropriate solutions and adopting plans and programs to conserve energy and dispose of waste using the correct scientific methods.Programs:College of Engineering through some of its decisions, projects, and programs, is trying to achieve the objectives set by its environmental policy. The College represented by its Dean, Prof. Dr. AbdulRahim Ibrahim Jasim, its scientific and administrative departments, its faculty staff, and its employees cooperate to make University of Mosul in general a green university that is environmentally friendly.
