Rationale
Environmental Monitoring provides valuable data that identifies the concentration of pollutants in environment (air, water, soil etc.) as compared to permissible levels to provide early warning of environmental threats. In this course of ‘environmental monitoring’ various aspects of water quality monitoring and air quality monitoring are included for students to learn.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Describe the need and importance of environmental monitoring in environmental engineering field and problems associated with it.
ii. Identify the pros and cons of various approaches to monitoring the environmental data
iii. Use sampling techniques.
iv. Prepare different solutions during analytical procedures for determination of water and air pollutants content.
