TRAINING FACILITIES IN ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE
Environment includes all the physical parts of the earth such as air, soil, minerals, rocks, water and all the organisms such as animals and plants living in it. Environmental Science provides an understanding of the environment, the impact of human life on it, and ways and means to preserve the delicate balance between various parts of the environment in the process of human development .
Since exciting and fulfilling avenues are opening up in this field, you may plan a career in various areas related to environment. The subject of study include Ecology, Environmental Planning, Pollution Biology etc.
A good number of college and institution offer diploma degree and post-graduate courses in environmental science. If you are interested in taking up a career in this field, the academic programmes listed in Appendix A, may be of interest to you.
On completion of your education in the field of environmental sciences, you may get jobs in the areas of teaching research and development, pollution control etc. Some of the possibilities have been discussed below:-
Those who have a post- Graduate degree in any field of
Environmental Sciences and with a Doctoral work may take up the teaching
profession as a lecturer in the pay scale of Rs. 2200-4000. They are
supposed to take graduate or post-graduate classes of environmental related
subjects such as air water quality management, environmental ecology,
industrial waste treatment, environmental chemistry etc. They
Ecologists study environmental influences such as temperature, rainfall,
altitude, kind and quality of food etc. and their effects on plant or animal
growth and development. They run experimental farms or laboratories under
natural and artificial conditions to watch effects
The industries that deal with synthetic dyes, pesticides, metals, minerals, plastic dust or plastics etc. employ environmentalists to comply environmental control provisions in the plant. They are designated as Manager (Ecology), Environmental Planner etc.
One should be a graduate in Environmental Eng. or a post graduate in Environmental Science for these posts.
Engineers in this field develop and modify systems to keep the environment clean and safe for living. They plan, design renovate the systems to control pollution. Those who have a degree or post- graduate degree in Environmental Engineering or Industrial Engineering are eligible for the posts. They are appointed as Jr. Engineers or Engineer. Jobs are available in Pollution Control Units. Environmental Engineering Process Laboratories .Water and Sewage Treatment Plants Public Health Engineering Departments, Industries dealing with Environmental pollutants etc.
