Prerequisite
Environmental Science
Rationale
The Course focuses on types of pollution, its effects and control methodology along with industrial law and acts. Safety management part includes engineering principles and methods required for safety in Industries. This course would educate students to identify and assess hazards in any stage of operation, to quantify and manage them as well.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Know about types of pollution, its sources, effects and control methodology and thereby environmental protection.
2. Be aware of the Industrial Laws and Act.
3. Know about environmental impact assessment and EIS.
4. Discuss methodology for environmental audit and safety audit.v 5. Be aware of the factors that can lead to an accident.
6. Learn different methods of hazard analysis and control of hazards.
7. Discuss source models, dispersion models, fires and fire prevention, explosions and explosion prevention, pressure relief systems, runaway reactions and risk analysis as they apply to chemical process safety, and be able to solve corresponding problems.
8. How to characterize different types of fire and explosions and its control

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. The best three works should submit to GTU.
