The Institute was established in 1972. It is the oldest and a premier Institute in the field of Environmental Engineering in Pakistan. It offers BSc, MSc and PhD in the field of Environmental Engineering. In addition, it provides advisory and consulting services to both, national and international organizations, in matters related to Environmental Engineering. Some of these organizations include, UNICEF, ADB, World Bank, UNDP, The Urban Unit, WASA, PHED and others. It is also one of the oldest and most reliable Institute that provides commercial testing services of water, wastewater and air. The Institute remained instrumental in framing National Environmental Quality Standards (NEQS) and National Standards for Drinking Water Quality (NSDWQ). Recently it has switched to Outcome Based Education (OBE) system and batches 2013-14 are accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) on OBE, thus the BSc degree is now recognized by 18 members of Washington Accord including USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Japan, China and others.
