Lovish Ahuja (India), Cohort I (2005-2007)

I have B.E in Environmental Engineering from Delhi College of Engineering, Delhi University as well as a Diploma in Indian Environmental Law from Indian Law Institute, New Delhi . I worked as an Executive with Environment Management Division, Confederation of Indian Industry, New Delhi. Was actively involved in the facilitation of management systems (ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, SA 8000 and BS 8555 etc.) implementation in Indian Industries. I developed management systems for both manufacturing and service sectors including industries from automobile, foundry, diesel genset, bangle manufacture, food & beverages, metallurgical and governmental building complexes, business centre in service sectors.

Faculty for EMS lead auditors course and conducted several in-company and inter-company training programmes on management systems implementation, hazardous waste management and Indian environmental legislation.

My research interests include development of sustainability management systems for Small & Medium Enterprise (SME’s) and Application of Market Based Instrument in pollution prevention.

Knowing about European excellence in the field of the environment, I consider any opportunity to study an environmental course in Europe as very attractive. This course is well designed and maintains a right balance of theoretical (classroom teaching) and practical knowledge. Above all the best feature of this course is its faculties (permanent and guest), who are perfect blend of knowledge and experience in their fields and knows well how to propagate their ideas to the students. Last but not the least most exciting characteristic of this course is that it provides us with an opportunity to study in more than one university under its programme, which I believe is not very common with other courses and thereby making it unique in itself.
