Post Graduate Diploma in Computing for Environmentalist Introduction:
The objective of the course is to enable students becomes proficient in using computer technology for analyzing data and decision-making, which will benefit them in their future careers. The influence of computers is universal. Computers have not only helped in increasing awareness amongst the environmental issues, but have also made the research and the development of various diagnostic and prevention methods, easy and cost effective.
The use of computer technology in the experimental sciences has facilitated the way Mathematicians, Environmental scientists/Engineers and many others able to acquire and analyze large amounts of experimental data. Integrating the Environmental science and the transformative power of computer science – is necessary for responding adequately to the challenges facing humanity and our planet. The ecological problems often translate into interesting decision optimization and statistical learning problems involving combinatorial decisions, dynamic modeling, and uncertainty. Therefore, it is imperative to acquire the knowledge of the computational techniques applicable to the problems.
There are a number of tools available from the mathematics and computational side. And so, it will be our endeavor to teach the most effective software packages, ensuring technology-enabled delivery of knowledge and thus achieving dual purpose of better assimilation and familiarization with future technologies, which are related to Environmental Science. The courses are designed to enable students acquire the necessary practical skills in handling common software products such as MS-Excel, MS-Access, Programming with C and MATLAB.
The course will be of 20 credits. Each credit will have 15 hours of workload out of which 8 credits shall be assigned to field work/project work/training.
