M.Tech Environmental Engineering

Programme Overview

The M.Tech Environmental Engineering programme at MIT-WPU is meticulously crafted to equip students with advanced knowledge and research skills essential for addressing contemporary environmental challenges. Environmental engineering, as a critical discipline, is dedicated to ensuring the sustainability of societal development and the responsible use of water, land, and air resources. By managing these resources effectively, environmental engineers minimise environmental pollution and degradation, safeguarding ecosystems and communities' well-being. Students delve into diverse topics such as Environmental Monitoring and Modelling, Industrial Air & Water Pollution Control, and Applications of GIS and Remote Sensing in Environmental Engineering, developing technical solutions that align with legislative, economic, social, and political considerations. Their responsibilities span various activities, including planning, designing, constructing, and operating water and wastewater treatment facilities, managing surface water and groundwater quality, remediating contaminated sites, and managing solid waste. Through a research project culminating in a dissertation and publications in scientific journals, students develop critical research acumen and contribute to the advancement of environmental engineering knowledge. The programme's unique pedagogy and interdisciplinary approach, industry alignment, and emphasis on practical learning make it a compelling choice for those seeking to make a tangible impact in environmental engineering. With state-of-the-art facilities, experienced faculty, and a vibrant learning community, MIT-WPU nurtures future leaders and changemakers in environmental engineering poised to address the pressing environmental challenges of our time. Graduates emerge with a strong foundation in environmental engineering, equipped to pursue careers in consulting firms, government agencies, research organisations, and specialised contractors, playing a pivotal role in environmental protection and sustainable development efforts.
