Rationale

Quantitative and qualitative analysis of environmental parameters is a very important aspect of studies of Environmental Engg. The subject of Env sciences I deals with qualitative and quantitative analysis of water and accurate determination of parameters.

Course Outcome

After learning the course the students should be able to:

  1. Calibrate the laboratory glass ware and instruments used in Environmental Engineering laboratory.
  2. Prepare and standardize the chemicals to be used in Environmental Engineering laboratory.
  3. Apply the basic concepts of analytical chemistry in performing laboratory analysis of water.
  4. Interpret the results of analysis.
  5. Relate the general chemical concepts as applicable in field of environmental engineering.

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide.
