The Department of Environmental Science and Engineering explores various aspects of human-environment interactions and works on developing long-lasting, sustainable solutions for the most pressing environmental issues. Faculty members with immense experience from highly reputed international and national institutes provide training to students towards solving environmental issues on a local to global scale.

Message from HOD

Environmental Science and Engineering is a multidisciplinary field that incorporates principles from environmental science, engineering, biology, chemistry, and mathematics to address complex environmental challenges. We focus on creating practical solutions and management approaches to safeguard our well-being and the environment. In our department, we recognize the critical role that science and engineering play in addressing the pressing environmental challenges of our time.


To create environmental technocrats through quality education with innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to address current and emerging environmental self-reliance and sustainability challenges.


Provide quality scientific expertise in environmental science to meet with the ongoing challenges related to climate change, resource depletion, biodiversity loss and energy-water crisis.

Build necessary skills for future environmental leaders to find sustainable soutions for pressing environmental, societal and climatic issues through bioengineering, renewable energy technologies, novel means of waste management, and conservation strategies.

Create environmental educators and researchers who can effectively communicate the scientific knowledge on current and futuure environmental change and crises to both specialists and the world.
