Problem statement: Due to the climatic changes and the ecological variations of the biosphere, global natural resources including the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, biodiversities, genetic resources and energy, radiation, electric charge and magnetism, must be safeguarded for the benefit of present and future generations through careful planning and management as appropriate. Approach: The main points of the International Council of Environmental Engineering Education (ICEEE) are to enhance services to its members, work with educational and research institutions to improve environmental engineering education and technology and promote the undergraduate university degree (B.Sc.), graduate higher degree (M.Sc.) and Ph.D. development, facilitate productive cooperation among industry, academy and government, enhance the participation and success of under-represented groups in the environmental engineering education enterprise, promote the value of the engineering profession, unify the environmental engineering education programs throughout the World Countries and exchange the environmental engineering education professionalism among international institutions. Results: Based on the above mentioned concepts, the Obuda University, Rejto Sandor Faculty of Light Industry and Environmental Protection Engineering (Budapest, Hungary), the Technical University of Kosice, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (Kosice, Slovakia), Uzhhorod National University, Faculty of Chemistry at the (Uzhhorod, Ukraine), Polytechnic Engineering College of Subotica and the UNESCO Chair in Water Resources-Sudan (UNESCO-CWR) agreed to establish an international organization dealing with environmental engineering education management. Conclusion: The dynamic development of our professional reforms and combined with effective use of scientific potentials agreed to improve the standards of environmental engineering education. Our institutions are agreed to fund and serve as the premier multidisciplinary council for individuals and organizations committed to promote all aspects of environmental engineering and engineering technology education. This study about ICEEE defines several of the basic components of the environmental engineering and engineering technology professions and the educational processes needed to produce qualified environmental engineers for the future.
