MSc Environmental Sciences

  • Sustainable Development
Introduction to the Programme

The Department of Environmental Science offers 2-year MSc degree in Environmental Science and Engineering. This course aims to equip students with multidisciplinary skills to solve environmental problems and find lasting solutions for environmental issues and climatic crises from regional to global scales. This program not only provides insights into the causes and consequences of the most pressing issues our world is facing today (global warming and climate change, energy crisis, water scarcity, pollution, biodiversity loss, etc.) but also build necessary skills to find sustainable solutions through bioengineering, renewable energy technologies, techno-economic analysis, and novel means of waste management, and conservation strategies. Our unique curriculum will enable students to find job opportunities in industries, consultancies or pursue further research with premier institutes/universities in India and foreign countries. Our faculty members have completed their PhD and post-doctoral research with premier Indian institutes (IIT, IISc) and research organisations and universities abroad (Sweden, Japan, Canada, USA, Malaysia) and continue to have ongoing research collaborations with these institutes. Our students will have opportunities to get involved in the ongoing institutional and collaborative research programs while pursuing MSc in Environmental Science and Engineering.
