Environmental Engineering in India

Environmental Engineering is a sub-branch of chemical engineering and civil engineering. It is multidisciplinary and applies ideologies of various science and engineering fields to study issues related to environment and engineer effective solutions to fix those issues. Environmental Engineering involves expertise in multiple fields such as management of hazardous waste, air pollution control, hygiene for industries, toxic supplies control, disposing of the solid waste, management of land and protection from radiations.

Various NGOs, industries, consulting firms, research firms, laboratories, chemical manufacturers, mining firms and government agencies are open with opportunities for environmental engineers with the bachelor degree.

Professionals with M.Tech Environmental Engineering have highly paid opportunities to work with government authorized assessment committees. These committees study the environmental risks involved with industry-based projects. After analyzing they submit the reports to the concerned authority.

Eligibility Criteria

Students can opt environmental engineering as an undergraduate course, post-graduate course and Ph.D course.

For UG courses: You must have completed your 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry, and Maths for getting admission in B.E or B.Tech Environmental Engineering. If you are in doubt about your passion for the environment, you can opt for B.Tech Civil Engineering or B.Tech Chemical Engineering and you can still opt for masters in environmental engineering.

For Postgraduate and Ph.D. courses: You can opt for M.Tech Environmental Engineering after your graduation. There are various entrance exams for admission into this program. After masters, you can further opt for a Ph.D. Environmental Sciences if you are a research aspirant.

Cost of undergraduate environmental engineering courses varies from 3 lakhs to 8 lakhs. For M.Tech in Environmental Engineering candidate may incur a cost from 1.5 lakhs to 3 lakhs.
