Environmental Technology and Management

Environmental technology and management research at Env Tech consist of the following:

  1. Clean Technology
  2. Occupational Safety and Health
  3. Renewable and Sustainable Energy Technologies
  4. Solid Waste Treatment and Management
  5. Water and Wastewater Treatment and Management
  6. Environmental Monitoring and Assessment
  7. Indoor Air Quality

In Clean Technology, the research focuses on process, product, or service that reduces negative environmental or wastes impacts through significant energy efficiency improvements, the sustainable use of resources, or environmental protection activities.

Research in the field of Occupational Safety and Health focuses on a multidisciplinary field concerned with people's safety, health, and welfare at work.

Research on Renewable Sources and Technologies studies on solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, and tidal energy and sustainable energy strategies and improvements in energy conservation.

Research in this the field of Solid Waste Treatment and Management is associated with control of generation, storage, collection, transport or transfer, processing and disposal of solid waste materials in a way that best addresses the range of public health, conservation, economics, aesthetic, engineering and other environmental considerations.

Research in Water and Wastewater Treatment and Management focuses on the process used to remove contaminants from water, wastewater or sewage and convert it into an effluent that can be returned to the water cycle with minimum impact on the environment, or directly reused.

Research in the field of Environmental Monitoring and Assessment involves the process of sampling and analysing specific environmental media (such as soil, water, or plants) for evidence of contaminant levels.

Research in Indoor Air Quality focuses on the quality of a building’s environment or indoor space concerning the health and wellbeing of those who occupy space within it.

The academic staff also apply what they learned from their research courses at the undergrad and postgrad levels. Courses that include the environmental technology and management field in its syllabus are:

Bachelor of Technology (Environmental)

Master of Science (Environment)
