Bangalore University to Start a Solid Waste Management Course

The Bangalore University, after having successfully established the Water Institute this year, is now planning on introducing a course of the postgraduate level in Solid Waste Management. This post graduation course of Solid Waste Management will operate under the Department of Environmental Science.

The university is working towards launching the course it the academic session of 2019-2020 itself. A planning committee consisting of some senior faculty members of Bangalore University and the University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (also known as UVCE) is presently chalking out the features and syllabus of this course.

A senior professor of University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering said that right now it is too early for them to say much about the course and the topics it will include. However, it is being designed so as to help the youth in understanding the importance of solid waste management. It will also bring awareness regarding the waste generated in the city and teach students about ways in which the waste can be dealt with.

The authorities have still not decided if this will be a degree course or a diploma course. However, it will only be for students who have an undergraduate degree. The BBMP and the city activists are both looking forward to the successful execution of the course. This will not only be a good opportunity for employment but will also coax people to come up with innovative ways to deal with waste and make it into a business opportunity as well.
