The Post-Graduation Diploma in Environment, Health & Safety Management (PGDEHSM) course of open distance learning (ODL) mode in JSS Academy of Higher Education and Research (JSSAHER) have important learning outcomes and measurable learning objectives.
The PGDEHSM as an add-on course and regular professional diploma course will be offering enormous carrier opportunities in industrial sectors, hospitals and related firms. Moreover, PGDEHSM is a good opportunity to the current employees from various industries to update their skills, which are necessarily required for the promotion and development in the field of Environment, Health and Industrial Safety. The practical and theoretical insights will be emerged from this professional course with an understanding of how to measure, evaluate, and make decisions about environmental issues. The candidate will have the opportunity to learn sophisticated laboratory techniques and data analysis, such as the utilization of geographical information systems, computer based decision making tools and real time monitoring systems. The programme encourages pursuing student’s interests and shaping their ambitions with meaningful opportunities to develop research, or to gain insights from industry leaders in the environmental private sector and non-governmental organizations. Curriculum with international standard that helps candidate to find their potential will increase their career competitiveness. The core mission is to impart knowledge with quality teaching and capacity building with a special focus on the industrial needs. Our vision is to grow into an institution of national importance, with international standing and internationally recognized centre of excellence and research in environmental sciences and management.
To develop highly qualified professional manpower the basic requirement lies on systematic quality based coaching and training in Advanced Science and Technologies for Environment, Health, and Safety management. Therefore, the course is designed to train and provide expert human resource to Environment, Health, and Safety Management and expected to bring direct benefits to industry and society.
The course is based on following objectives:
This course is intended for professional’s practitioners, researchers and students from wide range of backgrounds who aim to develop their knowledge and insights pertaining to the environment management and safety. The course in designed to provide critical and practical skills to analyze, evaluate, design and implement solution and strategies with regards to environment, health and safety management issues at industrial level. The prudent management of environmental health and safety, conservation, and sustainable development are high on the agenda of global concerns.
The Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) is measured as performance of work done by the student in a semester. The Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is measured as cumulative performance of a student in all semesters in the courses taken by the student. The mission of the postgraduate diploma in Environment, Health and Safety management at Department of Water & Health is to promote excellence amongst our postgraduate staff and students through responsive teaching, research and supervision, scholarship and instructional pastoral support.
The main objective of the courses offered is interdisciplinary in nature that enables over all student development and enhanced learning experience. Each course paper provides hands-on- experience that translates theory to practical. The curriculum is supported with field trips, industrial visits, other extension, and extracurricular activities wherever required. The students are encouraged to undergo and acquire scientific knowledge by frequently participating in different subject related workshops, research centers and national/international laboratories, industries, firms, etc with inter and multidisciplinary collaborative organization.

Dr. Shivaraju H.P has special knowledge in preparation and characterization of catalytic nanomaterials for sustainable environmental applications (Photoelectrocatalysis/electrocatalysis) such as removal/treatment of emerging pollutants in water and air, energy production and antimicrobial activity, CO2 reduction into useful compounds, intensification of methan yield in biomethanation (photo-electrochemicl reduction), etc. He has well experienced in the comprehensive study on evidence of accumulation of contaminants of emerging concern (CECs), including persisting organic pollutants (POPs), pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) and trace metals in environment. Development of novel water/wastewater reclamation techniques (Photoelectrocatalysis/electrocatalysis AOP, self sustaining hybrid processes, multi-functional membrenes, point-of-use advance filters, etc), Alternative energy research (Electrochemical conversion of CO2 into CH4/value added organic compounds, Electrocatalysis interfaced Hybrid Biomethanation, Biochemical Electrocatalysis [Microbial fuel-cell]), Integrated water resource management (water quality monitoring, technological frameworks for catchment management, pollution remediation techniques (self-sustaining) by utilization of solar-energy, Conceptual models with integration of Citizen Science (participatory), and monitoring (GIS-RS) approaches), and Fate, transportation & remediation of CECs are his special interests in research. He has developed sustainable technologies for remediation and treatment of POPs, PPCPs, trace metals, industrial dyes, hazard organics, pathogens etc in environment (water & air) using alternative and renewable energy sources and technology transformation for the social benefit. He has synthesized various advanced photocatalytic nanomaterials like doped metal oxides, nanocomposites, polymer blends, hybrid co-catalyst systems, and supporting catalytic materials under different synthetic methods like hydrothermal, salvothermal and sol-gel techniques. The nanoarchitecture and in-situ modification strategies for all of these nanomaterials were optimized for ideal catalytic applications by exploring efficient synthetic routes and potential modifiers. He has successfully demonstrated efficient treatment/removal methods for the hazardous pollutants and pathogens in water and wastewater by employing those catalytic nanomaterials. He has successfully developed solar-light responsible metal-oxide based nanocomposites for sustainable utilization of the natural sunlight as a major energy source for environmental remediation applications. He has prepared various nanostructures and nanocomposites such as TiO2/FeO3, CeO2/TiO2, ZnO/Al2O3/SiO2, PU/TiO2, etc for applications of sustainable renewable energy production processes such as biogas production, hydrogen production and solar light harvesting. He is actively involved in designing and eco-friendly synthetic novel routes for advance nanoparticles using bio-solvents, surfactants and conditioner as an effective capping and properties controlling agents. He has good expertise in the material characterization and analytical techniques like UV-Vis spectrometry, FTIR, powder XRD, ICP-MS, GC-MS, SEM, TEM, PALS, PL, Zeta potential, GC-MS, HPLC, AAS, etc. In addition, he has carried out many research works related to the environmental issues like impact and risk assessment, environmental remediation, hazardous waste management (waste to energy), climate change and CO2 mitigation approaches, industrial pollution and public health, biodiversity and conservation, integrated water resource management and governance, etc.
