Mr. Harpreet Kandra

Senior Lecturer, Water Engineering

Engineering 02



Churchill Campus, Online


Dr Harpreet Kandra has research expertise in wastewater recycling and reuse, water-sensitive urban design, environmental management and reporting. Dr Kandra’s focus has been on water demand management and integrated management of water resources using non-vegetated filters.

Harpreet has executed projects in developed and developing economies with funding from the United Nations Development Program, United Nations Environmental Program, United Nations Habitat, and local councils. He has received grants for research, teaching and community-focused projects.

Harpreet has also worked on internationalisation of curriculum on water management. He is a chartered engineer in civil and environmental engineering with Engineers Australia.

Harpreet is a Lecturer in water engineering at Federation University Australia. He has a PhD from Monash University, for which he was awarded a scholarship to pursue research on stormwater treatment and management.
