Water and Wastewater Engineering Research Group is one of the groups of expertise in Institut Teknologi Bandung. The Research Group vision is to be a reliable group in the field of water and wastewater engineering, and to support Institut Teknologi Bandung to be a center of excellence in Asia together with other research groups. This research group is established in 2016, and is a merger of two research groups; Water Research Group and Wastewater Research Groups.
Water and Wastewater Engineering Research Group plays an active role in the human development through innovative education, research, and community service in the field of water engineering and wastewater. We are also striving to challenge both local and global development.
Currently, Water and Wastewater Engineering Research Group is divided into four sub areas of expertise, namely: Water Technology (water supply engineering and wastewater treatment engineering); Sewerage and Drainage Systems; Environmental Biotechnology; and Sludge Treatment. The research group is run by 4 professors, 2 associate professors, 5 assistant professors and 4 lecturers who graduated from leading universities in United States, Japan, France, Germany, and Australia. They also have experience in teaching and doing research, both in Indonesia and overseas. For research, the group members are actively involved either in a supervisory activity at undergraduate or graduate levels, or as a partner of research that is funded by the university, ministry, industry, or any other international research funders.
Water and Wastewater Engineering Research Group members have also established cooperation with some industries through research projects and consulting service both with local or international universities to enhance the national reputation. They are also involved in national projects in the field of water supply and sanitation, industrial wastewater treatment, and sludge and soil remediation. These activities enrich the knowledge and provide theoretical and practical knowledge for the members.
On top of that, Water and Wastewater Engineering Research Group also gives contribution to the professional development of environment engineering infrastructure by organizing short trainings or courses in the field of water and wastewater engineering and environmental biotechnology.
