Environmental engineering

Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to improve the environment (air, water, and/or land resources), to provide healthful water, air, and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to remediate polluted sites. Negative environmental effects can be decreased and controlled through public education, conservation, regulations, and the application of good engineering practices. In the U.S., minimum education requirements for environmental engineers typically include a Bachelor's Degree in environmental (or civil) engineering from an accredited college.

Scope of environmental engineering

"Pollutants" may be chemical, biological, thermal, radioactive, or even mechanical. Environmental engineering emphasizes several areas: process engineering, environmental chemistry, water and wastewater treatment (sanitary engineering), waste reduction/management, and pollution prevention/cleanup. Environmental engineering is a synthesis of various disciplines, incorporating elements from the following:

* Civil engineering
* Chemical engineering
* Public health
* Mechanical engineering
* Chemistry
* Biology
* Geology
* Ecology

Environmental engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to the environment. Some consider 'Environmental Engineering' to include the development of sustainable processes. There are several divisions of the field of environmental engineering.

Eligibility: BE / B.Tech is 10+2 or equivalent examination, with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.10+2 / I.Sc. Phy., Chem. & Math. Min. 50% Marks in each subject.One must also pass the qualifying exam JEE (Joint Entrance Exam) conducted by the IIT's.

Duration: 4 Years
