Department of Environmental Science

Growing concern of the University in the environmental issues in various agro-climatic zones led to the establishment of this Department in 1984. It runs highly sought after Master’s and Ph.D. programmes in Environmental Science besides offering mandatory courses in UG and PG curricula of the University. The major thrust areas of research include environmental impact assessment, environmental pollution, biodiversity, environmental stresses and bio-remediation of agro-industrial waste. The instrumental facilities for environmental monitoring of air, water & soil samples have been developed.
