M.Sc. Environment Science
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 evolutionary biology, biodiversity, climate change, natural resource management, environmental management, environmental biotechnology, socioecology, environmental acts, conservation biology, advanced statistics, industrial development & sustainability, environmental management planning, environmental impact assessment, life cycle analysis, 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)..
In their second year, students can choose between two specializations:
Wildlife & Conservation-This course covers fundamental topics in conservation ecology and wildlife research methods, such as conservation planning, artificial intelligence for conservation, field sampling methods, and action research.
SDGs and Environmental Management Planning- Covers key topics in the localization of SDGs, CSR, and environmental management planning, such as green auditing, energy conservation, and CSR initiatives, among others.
Students can also select a 'General Track' of specialization, which is a combination of modules from Tracks 1 and 2. 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 programme also includes soft-skill development courses such as science communication, project management, and entrepreneurship innovations, making it truly holistic.
