This publication presents the final report of the Meeting of Experts on Environmental Aspects of Engineering Education and Training held in Paris, June 17-21, 1974. Convened by UNESCO in cooperation with the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), this meeting was part of a series of activities that UNEP is undertaking or assisting, aimed at supporting and encouraging the training of experts in various environmental fields. The objective of the meeting was to provide UNESCO and UNEP with guidelines on future programs that should be undertaken to assist member states in strengthening the environmental education of engineers. The meeting reviewed the need and means for the inclusion of environmental concepts into the education of all engineers, the strengthening of educational programs aimed at producing engineering graduates for work in environmental areas, and the inclusion of environmental components in continuing education programs for presently practicing engineers. The institutional structures that are needed to meet these objectives were also discussed. The meeting gave special attention to the conditions in developing countries and to the environmental consequences of development. Conclusions and recommendations formulated by the meeting are included. (BT)
