M.Sc. Environment Science

Programme Overview

The M.Sc. in Environmental Science programme at MIT-WPU is designed to prepare students for careers in environmental research and conservation, ecosystem management, societal development, and policy formulation. Students learn about ecology, climate change, natural resource management (NRM), pollution control technology, environmental management, environmental biotechnology, environmental acts & regulations, data analytics, industrial development & sustainability, environmental management planning (EMP), environmental impact assessment (EIA), life cycle analysis (LCA), and advanced RS-GIS. The programme includes skill-based courses in data analysis and analytics, remote sensing-geoinformatics (RS-GIS), and hands-on training in software for Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), and Environmental Management Plan (EMP).

The program offers three specializations in terms of elective courses that a student can choose each semester. The specializations are, namely, Wildife Conservation, Industrial Sustainability, and Environmental Regulations.

Wildlife & Conservation: This specialization track offers four courses of four credits each, namely, evolutionary biology, landscape ecology, wildlife research methods, and conservation ecology.

Industrial Sustainability: This track of specialization offers four courses of four credits each, namely, industrial pollution, green energy, industrial sustainability, and localizing SDGs.

Environmental Regulations: The regulations track offers four courses of four credits each, namely, environmental laws & policies, environmental education & awareness, environmental health & safety management, and environmental regulations & ethics.

Students can also select a 'General Track', in which a student can choose any elective from the three tracks across the semesters. The programme also provides a one-year exit option at the end of the first year, with the student receiving a Post-Graduate Diploma in Environmental Science.

The program emphasizes practical hands-on training through multiple field and industrial visits. The programme also includes soft-skill development courses such as science communication, project management, climate action leadership, and entrepreneurship innovations, making it truly transdisciplinary and holistic.
