Physic chemical environment.
Environmental techniques & impacts.
Eligibility criteria for all the courses is different yet all the B.sc courses needs 10+2 in science stream to qualify for the following.
Following is the list of institutes offering environmental science and environmental engineering courses.
South Gujarat university, Surat.
University of Delhi, Delhi.
University of Pune, Pune.
Bharathiar university , Coimbatore
Bharti vidyapeeth, Pune.
University of Mumbai.
Indian institution of environmental management
(SIES), Navi Mumbai.
These courses in their respective institutions are taking solid ground and urging the youth in becoming a responsible citizen towards the nation by understanding and protecting our mother nature. Sowing the seed now will surely give a sweet result to the generation which is yet to come.
Education when merges with environment can create great wonders for humanity. Henceforth it is essential to promote these less known academic courses in order to protect & defend our ecology also creating & providing jobs in the versatile sector of environment.
If these distant sector flourishes, the cherry on the cake will be luscious greenery around us. The feeling of exotic locations and hill-stations will hopefully be right at our doorstep.
