 History of foundation:
The Faculty of Environmental Monitoring was originally established as the Department of Radiobiology, Radiation and Nuclear Medicine. The first Rector of International Sakharov Environmental University, Professor A.M. Lyutsko contributed a lot to the formation and development of the Department. He founded the Department and provided direct support to it from 1991 to 1997. Subsequently, the third Rector of International Sakharov Environmental University, Professor S. P. Kundas, actively participated in the development of the faculty.
The faculty trains students in a group of engineering specialties related to ensuring the rational use of natural resources, environmental safety and environmental protection. Students are taught the methods of environmental monitoring, radiation monitoring, environmental impact assessment; analysis of data obtained to make decisions on environmental management, work with legal and regulatory documentation, the basics of nuclear and radiation safety at nuclear power plants and when exposed to ionizing radiation on personnel and the population; principles of medical physics and the use of radiation technologies in medicine, conduct system energy analysis (energy audit) of enterprises, technological processes and devices, assess their functional, economic and energy efficiency; calculate the energy efficiency of design solutions, assess their environmental safety.
Students of the faculty receive good practical training not only in University laboratories with modern equipment, but also based on industrial and energy sector enterprises, departments of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection, research centers, hydrometeorological center, design organizations, High-Tech Park, medical institutions.

International cooperation of the faculty nowadays

International projects TEMPUS HS (2012-2015) and TEMPUS EcoBRU (2013-2015) are being implemented, aimed at developing training programs for II stage higher education specialists and retraining specialists in the field of environmental safety.

International cooperation:

 
Main research directions:
 
  • “Development of radiochemical methods for rapid determination of strontium-90 in food and radionuclides of the proposed stability island of the periodic table around element 114” in collaboration with Langrock office, Germany;
  • “Chemical technologies and materials, natural resource potential”, subprograms “Natural resource potential “Section” Radiation, ecology and technosphere”; 
  • International Belarusian-Ukrainian project “Biosafety and problems of mutual adaptation of natural and artificial nanostructures in Biomedicine and genetics: natural science and bioethical aspects”(2013-2015), implemented under the agreement between the BRFFI and International Sakharov Environmental University No. B13K-061 dated on April 16, 2013. Coordinator – Ph.D., Associate Professor T. V. Mishatkina. The aim of the project is to carry out a natural science and bioethical analysis of the possibilities and prospects for mutual adaptation of natural and artificial nanostructures in Biomedicine and genetics in the context of ensuring human and nature Biosafety. According to the contract, stages 4-8 of the project were completed in 2014. The interim annual report was submitted and approved by the BRFFI in March 2014.

Also, the faculty’s research is developing in the following areas::

  • Development of the basics and creation of a prototype of an automated system with elements of artificial intelligence to generate possible structures and stereoisomers of complex transition metal compounds;
  • Technical aspects of environmental education in the field of renewable energy.
