The PGDSM programme of NITIE was launched in 2001 keeping in mind that Environmental and Safety considerations are becoming an integral part of core business planning in India, expanding from the realm of a limited number of EHS specialists to a full league of Sustainability specialists, business strategists, financial professionals, marketing managers and Risk Specialists. With Safety and environmental issues at the center of the global economy, these issues inevitably will assume a more central role in business education.
The PGDSM course is a tailor – made programme to groom EHS specialists. The PGDSM curriculum encompasses both managerial and technical perspectives. It introduces students to a systematic approach for the evaluation of environmental, social and economic impacts.
Apart from classroom teaching, emphasis is laid on industrial visits, practical case studies, industrial guest faculty, presentations and management games.
THE PGDSM Programme is the first Programme in the country to get the IOSH accreditation from IOSH UK..In 2019, the Post Graduate Diploma in Industrial Safety and Environmental Management has been reviewed by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) USA and approved as a Transitional Safety Practitioner (TSP) Qualified Equivalent Program (QEP), providing the program’s graduates the option to apply with BCSP for the TSP designation.
