New collaborations for overseas Masters projects
Two new collaborative partnerships have been set up between LEC and IIT Roorkee and ISI Kolkota, India, to provide Masters students with more options for their research project fieldwork to be carried out overseas. The project in collaboration with ITT Roorkee will look at the impact of effluent discharge from carpet factories on ground water quality. The projects in collaboration with ISI Kolkota will look at the efficiency of pisciculture as a sewage treatment process in the wetlands near Kolkota, and the potential pollutants present in river water, fish, and the soil and farmed vegetation irrigated by this water. Students will collect samples at relevant sites in India (accompanied by a local field assistant and supervised by a colleague from the host institute) and will return to LEC to carry out their analyses under the supervision of their LEC supervisor. Students on the MSc Environment and Development programme have priority on these projects.
