M.Tech. - Health, Safety and Environment

Details

The goal of the Health, Safety, and Environment course is to prepare personnel with a degree in engineering for managerial positions by providing them with scientific know-how and orientation in theory and practice in the areas of safety, health, and hygiene. The person with this expertise will become eligible to lead and guide the industry to meet the high standards and solve problems in workplace safety, health, and the environment.

  • This course covers the science, engineering, and management aspects of unpredictable catastrophes in a workplace towards the effective assurance and implementation of the HSE management system.
  • We teach core courses like fire engineering, chemical engineering, process safety engineering, environmental engineering, first-aid and emergency services, electrical safety, behavioural-based safety, occupational health hygiene, and others.
  • Provides an innovative, high-quality learning opportunity in health, safety and environment engineering and management.
  • Wide acceptance globally; our alumni are working across the globe. Competent HSE professionals are in high demand in several industries, including but not limited to construction, manufacturing, and services.

UPES’ curriculum framework is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. Along with the core subject, students have the option to choose from subject-focused specialisations. They are also allowed to choose minor/exploratory subject from other schools at UPES that are: School of Engineering, School of Computer Science, School of Law, School of Business, School of Health Sciences, School of Design, School of Modern Media, and School of Liberal Studies.

Further, based on the multifaceted needs of the global workplace and evolving lifestyles, the curriculum offers Signature and Life-Skills courses through School for Life. To round off this learning experience, students are required to do mandatory internships in the social sector, government/public sector, and industry. The combinations available for students to pick and choose from are endless, ensuring both depth and width of knowledge.
