About Department

The Environmental Science was working under the Department of Applied Sciences since 2009, primarily to offer Environmental Science course compulsory for students in undergraduate courses. With increasing popularity and need in present time for environmental experts, the department plan to offer  M.Sc. in Environmental Science from upcoming session 2020 with objective to provide professionals with expertise in various aspects of environment. The Department of Environmental Science came into existence with the formation of new school namely School of Basic Sciences and Research (SBSR) in August 2013. The department offers M.Sc. in Water Resources and Environmental Management, and  PhD in Environmental Science, where we have achieved a land mark of producing two DAAD Fellow and two students are working in Lulea University Sweden as Post Doc Fellow. The department is having good research programmes funded by national and international agencies and offering the fellowship to 1 students at present through these fundings. The department is one of the pioneering private departments involved in the glaciological research with its own observatories in the high Himalaya (on the glacier site) funded by National and International organisations through research programmes.

  • The main areas of ongoing research - Air pollution, Himalayan Gaciology, Glacier melt water chemistry, Glacio-hydrological Modelling, Meteorological studies, Air pollution modelling, Water pollution and control, Remote sensing and GIS etc.
