M.Sc. Environment Science and Technology

Programme Overview

M.Sc. in Environment Science is a two-year postgraduate course that dives deeper into the study of environment and ecosystem. The students will learn more about the social issues surrounding the environment, and the curriculum includes biodiversity conservation, natural resource management, green technology, sustainable development and other aspects of environmental and ecosystem studies.

The MSc. in Environmental Science course has a transdisciplinary approach that integrates the science of environmental studies with technical and social issues and includes courses on ecosystem studies, biodiversity conservation, natural resource management, geoinformatics, water and waste water engineering, green technology, environmental lab techniques, sustainable development, urban sustainability and environment and health. The masters in environmental science builds on a candidate’s knowledge of chemistry, biology, statistics, computers, engineering, sociology and economics to develop a deeper understanding of applications in the environmental sector. It includes the cognitive aspects and technological skills necessary to further sustainable form of development and rational resource-use management. It trains the candidate in advanced laboratory skills required for pollution monitoring and abatement, to undertake environmental impact assessment(EIA), ecodevelopment, ecorestoration, implement green technology, assess biodiversity, etc. The program addresses environment management from the technical, social as well as the policy aspect to counter the effects of degradation of the ecosystem.
