The Environmental Science Discipline was established in 1996. We made the first initiative in Bangladesh to provide formal university degree solely in Environmental Science. We have highly qualified faculty having their research interest in diverse area of science, engineering and management aspects of the environment.

The challenge of sustainability is grueling every day as increasing global population exerting increased demand on global water, mineral, and energy resources. Consequently, the importance of advanced training in environmental science is increasing rapidly. The Environmental Science Discipline offers outstanding multidisciplinary education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Our programs use scientific principles and methods to understand the impact of human activities on natural systems. Toward this, our faculty and students deal with the issues comprising environment, society and development. We expose our students to a wide array of environmental sciences comprising the physical, chemical, biological, geographical, technology and policy aspects of the natural environment. Besides, we emphasize on direct field and laboratory experiences at all educational levels with active and close interactions between faculty and small groups of students. Our graduates gone to myriad careers, occupying leadership positions in industry, government, and academia.
