M.Tech (Environmental Engineering)

M.Tech (Environmental Engineering)

M. Tech in Environmental Engineering is a 2 years full time or 3 years part time postgraduate programme focused on management of water resources land and air pollution. The programme imbibes key scientific mathematical and computational concepts for solving the traditional and emerging environmental issues in different geographical settings. The main objective of the programme is to develop technocrats that can work towards minimising the adverse effects of anthropogenic activities on the environment and ensuring the provision of a safe and healthy environment for human beings. The programme also enlightens individuals to devise ways to restore soil, air and water quality at already contaminated sites. An adequate number of elective courses are available in the areas of Sustainable Development, Renewable Energy, Green Buildings, and Environmental Auditing to enable a deeper understanding of contemporary and emerging sub-disciplines. It is an interdisciplinary programme preparing students for careers in industrial research and academia.

Objectives

  • Students will learn fundamental science and engineering principles needed for environmental engineering, including concepts of biosphere, ecosystem, environmental resources and biodiversity.
  • Enabling the students to understand the various aspects of environmental chemistry, and to lay a foundation for understanding in specialized areas of environmental management and practices.
  • Emphasizing on relationship between our biosphere and environment, impacts of various anthropogenic activates on our environment.
  • Students should learn the principles and techniques of assessing areas of natural environment and applying environmental assessments to evaluate the inherent suitability of these areas for sustainable urban and resource-based uses.
  • Students should develop an understanding of the theory of air pollution, its effects, mechanism/ behavior in the atmosphere, monitoring and control of air & noise pollution.
  • Learning the design of various units of water and wastewater treatment plants and comprehending with the mechanism taking place in various units.
  • Understanding behavior of groundwater flow and pollution through mathematical/ software modeling techniques.
  • Learning the concepts and techniques for handling hazardous and industrial wastes, dealing with public health engineering and acquiring the knowledge of various aspects of health and the issues related with sanitation.
  • Learning the basic idea of principle of photogrammetry, remote sensing and GIS including their application in assessing various environmental threats. Enabling the students to monitor and survey natural resources and impact on its environment due to developmental activities and natural hazards.

Outcome

  • Students shall demonstrate sound knowledge in Environmental Engineering problem identification, formulation, analysis, design, laboratory investigations and engineering aspects of Environment, utilizing advanced/ appropriate technology.
  • Inculcating in students technical competencies to deal with practical aspects of environment related issues within stipulated/specified time and funds using modern techniques and equipment.
  • Postgraduates shall develop a broad understanding of environmental issues that affect societal, health and safety factors and demonstrate the ability to interact and work seamlessly in multidisciplinary teams with competence in modern technique usage.

Eligibility Criteria

• Candidate must have passed B. Tech. (any stream) from any recognized University or AICTE recognized Institute/ College with minimum aggregate marks of 50% or 5.5 CGPA for GEN/OBC and 45% marks or 5.0 CGPA for SC/ST category or M. Sc (any stream) with 45% marks or 5.0 CGPA for GEN/OBC and 40% marks or 4.5 CGPA for SC/ST category.
• In addition to the above mentioned basic M. Tech. (Regular) eligibility, candidates must have at least 2 years Teaching/ Industrial/ Research/ Professional Work Experience for M. Tech. (Part Time) in CE.

Environmental engineering has immense scope in India for professionals who are qualified in chemical, biological, thermal, radioactive or even mechanical engineering as environmental engineering is a diverse field and requires people from diverse background. Moreover, professionals from process engineering, environmental chemistry, water and sewage treatment, waste reduction management, pollution prevention, etc. are required in large numbers.

Job prospects for professionals with qualification in environmental engineering are bright in research centres, NGOs and various governmental departments working towards green development. Candidates with M.Tech in environmental engineering have opportunities to work for government built assessment committees which study and analyse the environmental risks involved in certain projects. The report of such a committee is then submitted to the concerned authority for further observation.
