Anurag Sarika wants to educate the people of his home country of India about the effects of pollution, so decided to undertake postgraduate studies in environmental science and technology.
Master of Environmental Science and Technology
I feel strongly about protecting our environment, and it was this that helped me choose my area of study.
RMIT is a prestigious university with a good international reputation and suits me both professionally and economically. I also believe that it provides the right facilities and support to help students reach their potential.
Postgraduate study takes you one step further not only academically, but personally and professionally too. In India, many people dream of completing postgraduate study abroad because of the insights and experience they will receive; to improve their knowledge and to build their career.
In historically and culturally diverse India, there are 1.3 billion people using the environment. The motivation for my study is to educate people about the effects of pollution. However, one man alone cannot make the necessary changes, so I have joined SPIRIT (Student Promoted Innovative Research In Technology) where I’ve undertaken over 20 environment-related projects, and have worked for the GUIDE Foundation to assist them in the training and development of 54,000 thousand students on environmental issues such as electronic waste.
I enjoy the experience of meeting with fellow students of varying ages and backgrounds and learning about their culture and opinions. I’ve found that when you take part in extracurricular activities or join a student club it can open up a whole new world of experiences. During my undergraduate studies I took part in many clubs and am currently a member of RMIT Student Union (RUSU) at RMIT.
I hope my degree will lead to a career where I can work with people of different nations, cultures and traditions to mobilise, serve and improve understanding about societal and environmental impacts.“
