HOD Environmental Science

The Department of Environmental Science was established in the year 2004 and since then it is mentoring students of all the courses offered by the college. All the faculty members of the department are highly experienced and qualified and ensure teaching the subject with dedication and commitment. Our solo motto is to sensitize the whole student community about the environmental degradation, caused due to meddling too much with nature because of their ignorance, so that they become environmentally responsible citizens and imbibe the values of environmental preservation and sustainable development. The department organizes various programs like environmental week celebrations, workshops, extension lectures etc to encourage student participation and infuse in them a sense of belongingness to their environment. To make students environmentally more conscious and nature lovers, we have established Eco Club in the college where students volunteer to represent and conduct environmental programs on their own with full support and guidance from the faculty members of the department. In future, we hope to organize many more environmental programs so the community in whole becomes environmentally conscious and the lost pristine glory is restored to our serene environs .
