About the branch of Environmental Engineering

Since 1983, Department of Environmental Engineering has been imparting education and training in all aspects of sustainable environment. The students undergo an academic program based on necessary  fundamental concepts of Civil Engineering and emphasizing on  aspects  of Environmental pollution & control, Environmental management, Environmental policy & laws  along with  Clean Development Mechanism(CDM); Health and Safety (EHS) of Industry and society which is  everyone’s concern at Global, Regional and Local level.

Over the period, we have changed our syllabus as per need and demand of industry and society and we are proud to offer such course only at KIT in Maharashtra. Since 2011, we are offering some professional courses of industrial demands which shall add to value to our student’s profile as well as can handle the issues of EHS at Industry. Internal Auditors training in EMS, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, Energy Management ISO 50001 and Carbon Foot printing ISO 14064 were offered by our department in collaboration with professionals from SGS International Limited. We are sure that students of who have undergone above training may become Internal Auditors.

We, at Department of Environmental Engineering, cultivate and mould students as per industrial demand by mentoring them with effective presentations, soft skills. One has to acquire these skills with fluency over English language to grab prestigious jobs in Fortune 500 MNC’s. We offer all kinds of training and guidance to students to be successful in the career. Job placement for such branch is high if one willing to relocate anywhere and work for job satisfaction but not only for higher packages, perks and allowances. We are proud; our graduates of Environmental Engineering are working at prestigious positions in renowned organizations all over the World such United Nations well as Fortune 500 Multinational and transnational companies across India and World. We do offer campus placement for our students which is Add-on voluntary service offered by KIT and the eligible ones are placed in good organizations. Students with consistent academic performance grab any job even without any campus placements service shortly after graduation! Academically strong students go for higher studies in IITs, NITs and in reputed Universities abroad.

Finally, I wish to advice the aspiring students who wish to opt a career in Engineering that any branch of Engineering is equally important but if you wish to succeed, you need to have sound knowledge base. During the studentship; enhance your presentations and soft skills with fluent English which is demand of any Industry. Any students can become engineer but successful engineer shall possess the desirable qualification as per the description of job. The branch of Environmental Engineering is the only branch which has very promising future as the Environmental Pollution and its control is becoming urgent and top priority issue at all levels! Environmental Engineer’s role is vital to enrich Environment for better life and tomorrow. You are most welcome to join our Program of B.E. (Environmental Engineering) and we, dedicated, highly motivated faculty are here to serve you the best of best in the field of Environmental Engineering.

I wish the success now and forever…..
