Rationale
The air pollution levels in some of our cities have reached to such a level that it is causing health related problems and very poor visibility in winter months resulting in traffic accidents. It is therefore very important to monitor and control air pollution. The course will provide a detailed knowledge of air quality management with an emphasis on the sources of air pollution, including the effects on humankind, plants and animals. In depth awareness of central, state, and local regulatory requirements in respect of air pollution laws and regulations will be provided. Principles of air pollution prevention and control, equipment and technology used for the purpose will be dealt with description of control of specific gaseous emissions. This course is therefore a key course for environment engineers.
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. Identify sources, causes and effects of air pollution.
ii. Analyse the environmental effects of air pollution on humankind, plant and animal kingdoms.
iii. Identify the meteorological components
iv. Take basic actions to minimise air pollution, prevention and control
v. Maintain scrubbing system to control specific gaseous emission.
vi. Follow the laws and regulations of air pollution prevention and control at the local, state and country level.
