The development of environmental engineering education in Australia has been marked more by indifference than enthusiasm. During the past ten years there has been a steadily growing acceptance of environmental education in every educational sphere, both in Australia and overseas. Already there have been numerous and varied initiatives such as, new courses, new emphases placed in traditional courses, new organisations formed, new books, and journals. For the most part these have occurred in relative isolation and the result has been an increased awareness of environmental problems. But this has not necessarily been a balanced one, that leads to greater commitment to the long-term management of natural and man-made resources.
