Now, that you are preparing for GATE Civil Exam we’re here to discuss with you the next subject in the GATE Civil Engineering Paper, which is Environmental Engineering. So, If we take a simple analysis of the weightage of marks given to this topic out of 65.00 (total marks in the GATE Civil Engineering Paper), then Environmental Engineering will get 08.50 marks roughly, which is about 13% of the paper. So, What makes Environmental Engineering difficult for many students is that it includes concepts from various other subjects. Also, brought together to get an application based solution. Hence, Let’s proceed so that we can formulate a way by which we can tackle this subject.
Quality standards, basic unit processes and operations for water treatment. Drinking water standards, water requirements, basic unit operations and unit processes for surface water treatment, distribution of water. Sewage and sewerage treatment, quantity and characteristics of wastewater. Primary, secondary and tertiary treatment of wastewater, effluent discharge standards. Domestic wastewater treatment, quantity of characteristics of domestic wastewater, primary and secondary treatment. Unit operations and unit processes of domestic wastewater, sludge disposal.
Types of pollutants, their sources and impacts, air pollution meteorology, air pollution control, air quality standards and limits.
Characteristics, generation, collection and transportation of solid wastes, engineered systems for solid waste management (reuse/ recycle, energy recovery, treatment and disposal).
Impacts of noise, permissible limits of noise pollution, measurement of noise and control of noise pollution.
Also, You should first prepare a topic then solve subjective type questions of the same topic. Keep a time box, and try and complete the tasks you assign to yourself in that time itself. Furthermore, When taking a break, try to indulge in activities that do not distract you beyond your break time. Also, the movie, the plot Choose what you do very wisely.
So, If you have less time to prepare for GATE, consider hiring a personal tutor or joining an Online Course. Also,Getting external help can prove beneficial .Also, There will be fast understanding of concepts, quick clearance of doubts, motivation. So, They will help you understand your strengths and weaknesses. these things cannot be done by oneself alone, but certainly doing all of it yourself will take that much time. So act wise. Also, Take a decision depending on your situation.
Here, I have added a small video on Environmental Engineering which can show you what a good quality video lecture can be like: precise, clear and having a good production quality. Also, he faculty is highly qualified, she graduated from St. Stephen’s College (Delhi University) and has a Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences from IIT Bombay.
