Ecology Department of the Belarusian National Technical University was established on January 1, 1991. The Department is a scientific, methodic, and consulting center, which deals with lifelong specialists training and retraining in the field of ecology. In 1992-1994 the Department worked out and implemented the system for continuous ecological training for engineers during the whole period of study. Since 1995 the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Belarus has spread this system as a basic model for technical universities of the Republic of Belarus.

Since 1997 the Department has trained engineers in ecological management of enterprises in the framework of the speciality ''Ecological Management and Audit in Industry''. In the Republic of Belarus, the need to perform ecological certification of goods, production, factories, and services in connection with implementation of international ecological standards STB ISO series 14000 generated the demand for engineers in this speciality
