Department of Environmental Sciences at SRM University, Haryana (SRMUH) was established with the clear objective of furthering cutting edge interdisciplinary research in specific fields. Research on Environmental Impact Studies, Environmental Health, Climate Change and Waste management is in progress. Several research proposals covering these aspects are being currently developed.
The Department has been actively identifying and introducing various courses linking environmental issues and sustainable development with technology and business. These introductory courses are being taught to the students of technology and management at SRMUH since the past academic year. A core course “Environmental Management” was taught during the academic year 2013- 2014. After attending these courses through lectures, case studies and projects, students will be able to integrate environmental dimensions into business management. This integration will enable them to adopt a practical outlook to take holistic decisions for managing their business sustainably. Another course, “Environmental Science and Technology” is being taught to the B.Tech students in the 2nd term. As the environmental problems clash with the technology and development, most of the MNCs prefer recruiting people who are environmentally educated. We hope to set the stage for inculcating environmentally conscious professionalism into technologists, managers and entrepreneurs of India.
