Specialization in Sustainable Environmental Engineering
- Specialization in Sustainable Environmental Engineering
About the Course
The program aims at providing Engineering graduates with the advanced conceptual understanding, detailed knowledge and technical skills appropriate to Sustainable Environment Management in Industries.
The courses are tailored to equip students to research, design, and build environmental engineering infrastructure systems in harmony with nature using life cycle cost analysis and benefit analysis and life cycle assessment with an aim to protect human health and environments at minimal cost. The course presents how specific environmental engineering issues could be identified and prioritized under climate change through quantification of air, water, and soil quality indexes. Innovative technologies which are critical in the paradigm shift from the conventional environmental engineering design to resource recovery facilities are examined in detail. These new processes include UV disinfection, membrane separation technologies, Anammox, membrane biological reactor, struvite precipitation, Fenton process, photocatalytic oxidation of organic pollutants, as well as green infrastructure. Students will have the opportunity to carry out research and undertake industry-relevant dissertation projects.
- The curriculum is well balanced with exposure to theoretical and practical aspects of engineering practice.
- The students are taught by a combination of lectures, tutorials, laboratory classes and Design Projects.
- Practicing Engineers are called to give lectures on a wide range of topics at all stages of the course.
- Visits are arranged regularly to various construction sites and Structural Engineering Research Centre for benefit of students
Candidates for admission to the first semester of the M.Tech course shall be required to have passed B.E./B.Tech in Civil Engineering or any other equivalent degree.
The students are assisted to undergo practical training for 4 weeks in any industry to gain practical experience and technical skills at the end of the first year. The students are also encouraged to give seminars on current areas of research.
To acquire high degree of technical skills and to translate original ideas into a working reality, project work is carried out by students in two phases. To execute the project work, excellent facilities are available.
There is a huge demand for Environmental engineers in India as the country gets ready to upgrade its infrastructure with growing economic and political clout in the world. The career opens a lot of opportunities in numerous organizations like Indian Aluminium Limited , Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited , Pollution Control Board, National Environmental Engineering Research Institute ,Tamil Nadu Water supply and Drainage Board, Chennai Metro Water etc. The experienced Environmental Engineers can also work as consultants for solving environmental problems.
