Mission Statement of the ProgramTo provide quality education for producing environmentalists, capable of devising innovative solutions for environmental challenges, conservation of natural resources and contribute in making environmental policies to achieve sustainable development goals to improve life, through best practices, integration of multidisciplinary approaches, and applied research.
Program IntroductionEnvironmental Sciences is a 4-year degree program under the faculty of Architecture and Town planning. The Program is designed to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and passion necessary to address environmental challenges at local, regional, and global scales. Through a comprehensive curriculum, students will gain a deep understanding of environmental issues, conservation strategies, sustainable development, and the integration of scientific research in environmental decision-making. With experienced and highly qualified faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, and a focus on hands-on learning, our program aims to nurture the next generation of environmental leaders and professionals. Join us as we strive to make a positive impact on our planet and create a sustainable future for all. The scheme of studies for all the programs are completely in line with HEC guidelines provided in the latest NCRC.
List of faculty
Scope of the ProgramEnvironmental Sciences is a challenging and important field of science. Environmental degradation has occurred over time due to population explosion, over-exploitation increasing land use, lack of environmental awareness, climatic shift, etc. due to which it is nowadays a global issue of concern. The waste accumulation has caused contamination of soil, water bodies, and groundwater causing direct and indirect impacts on human health. Industrial emissions have led to the suspension of hazardous particulate matter and atmospheric pollution. The study of the environment plays a crucial role in addressing environmental issues by fostering the development of cleaner technologies, raising widespread environmental awareness among the masses, conserving natural resources, and facilitating global collaboration to establish effective environmental governance laws and policies. These initiatives are necessary to combat climate change and achieve sustainable development goals.
