ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

The Department of Environmental Engineering was born as an off-shoot of Civil Engineering in the year 1987 obtaining a grant-in-aid status in 1993. Since then, the dept is full-fledged in running one undergraduate (U.G.) program and two Post graduate (P.G.) programs – M.Tech. in Environmental Engineering and M.Tech. in Health Science and Water Engineering. The U.G. program and the M.Tech. program in Environmental Engineering are accredited by NBA of AICTE, New Delhi.

The Faculty in the Department of Environmental Engineering are highly qualified, dynamic, motivated, with acquired technical expertise and critical thinking skills in their chosen area of professional domain. The Faculty are actively involved in sponsored Research and Development (R&D), Research-Consultancy, Finishing School, GIAN programs, Seminar and Workshops, Invited Technical talks and Industry-Institute Interactions. The distinguished Alumni have made a niche through exemplary contributions to the needs of the society and also realizing their dreams of high echelons.
