Vision

The Department of Environmental Science committed to develop as a cutting-edge advanced center for interdisciplinary education and research. The department program will provide transformative and novel research on challenging environmental issues through education, collaboration and engagement.

Mission

  • Disseminate quality teaching and knowledge on current environmental issues.
  • Human resource development to tackle environmental challenges and to achieve sustainability.
  • Promote cost effective technologies for agriculture and industries for nation building.
  • Impart environmental awareness and education for healthy, pollution free and habitable environment.

Introduction

Environmental Science has developed as the interdisciplinary subject to understand the physical chemical and biological processes of natural system. The Environmental science program provides a understanding and skill to address the environmental issues in scientific manner. 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. 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 years and we are keen to introduce post graduate courses on environmental sciences. 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. 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.
