Department of Environmental and Conservation Sciences
The Department of Environmental Sciences was established in 2012 with the aim to provide prospective students with extensive knowledge, understanding and skills to preserve, protect and rehabilitate local and global environment and build a sustainable future. The program focuses to pioneer a new generation of research and teaching methods that understand the issues and arrive at solutions to pressing societal problems; prepares its graduates to understand environmental systems, predict environmental change, participate in the management of the environment, and contribute for the promotion of sustainable society. We believe that offering quality education in this discipline will not only help attract the most talented students to our department but also produce capable environmental scientists with sound know-how to solve environmental problems. Together with imparting top-notch education and research, the Department is also thriving to play its important and vital role in the protection, preservation and restoration of environment and sustainable development. The graduates are expected to play a critical role in coordinating multidisciplinary input to assure successful deployment that is necessary in meeting emerging environmental challenges in Pakistan, throughout the region and around the globe. The Department’s all-embracing goal is to make it a leading institution in Environmental Sciences based on the quality of graduates produced, number of research scholars, quality and production of scientific research, and services to the community and public sector in analyzing and managing environmental issues.
The Department focuses to pioneer a new generation of research and teaching methods that understand the fundamental processes which contribute to environmental pollution and natural resource degradation, and arrive at solutions to pressing societal problems; Moreover, to prepares graduates for understanding environmental systems, predicting environmental changes, participating in the management of the environment, and contributing for the promotion of sustainable society.
- To provide formal education and research in the field of Environmental and Conservation Sciences to bring the education standards up to the international level.
