South Gujarat and especially Surat has seen rapid industrial growth in past few decades. Besides this, many industrial zones viz., GIDC, SEZ, ZSI surrounded by city Ankleshwar, Bharuch, Dahej, Valsad, Vapi, Daman have also seen rapid development a part of opportunities in forest and wild-life study by wide forest zone of bharuch, dang, navsari, Saputara. However, this industrial growth has also raised concerns regarding its impact on environment. Thus, there are many job opportunities in the sectors of pollution control, environmental testing and environmental consultancies. First time in the region of South Gujarat a graduate degree course is being started in response to this demand.
B.Sc. in Environmental Science is an undergraduate degree course is typically for three years in the stream of Environmental Science. Subjects usually studied under this are Chemistry, Microbiology, Biology, Soil science, Geology, and Geography. The duration for this course is 3 years.There are many career options in the field of environmental science. The job opportunities in this particular area in the private and government organizations as well as industries are increasing due to the growing industrialization and realization to check the pollution levels. The global organizations engaged in pollution control and sustainable growth is offering attractive compensation to the fresh graduates.
Professionals in this career can also opt for teaching jobs in universities and colleges. Environmental scientists are engaged in research activities in private and public sector institutions. Many graduates are employed in media sector as environmental journalists.

Environmental Science curriculum provides students with opportunities to gain extensive hands-on experience with these scientific tools and facilities through lab-based coursework and research projects. A wide variety of scientific equipment is used to analyse environmental samples.

Our laboratories are equipped with high-quality, state-of-art experimental facilities enabling research at the forefront of science and technology. The department maintains fully-calibrated instruments, like CoD digesters, binocular microscopes, UV-Vis spectrophotometer, High volume samplers etc. which are available to students along with training and troubleshooting support. Facilities provide standard equipments and expertise, which support in-house (intramural) research activities at the institute.

Department also uses four other laboratories for following subjects on sharing basis with various departments of the same institute.

  • Ecoinformatics and Ecological Modelling (To study ecological data generation and analysis)
  • Image analysis, GPS and qGIS (To study frontier aspects of RS and GIS technology)
  • Microbiology (To develop essential skills for applied microbiology)
  • Physics (To study energy balance aspects of various energy resources)
  • Botany and Zoology (To develop essential skills for applied botany and zoology)

Research:
The Department has an active research program in various subdomains of Environment Science. Faculties have taken up various intramural and students’ dissertation projects in Environmental
Science. Two faculties of department are actively supervising research students for M.Phil. and Ph. D. degree.

RIO Program

In June 2012, Brazil hosted United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD), popularly known as Rio+20.

Rio+20 was 10-day long mega-conference organized by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs and saw participation from over 190 countries. Rio+20 culminated with the A/RES/66/288 – the future we want declaration.

IARC launched the RIO Program (2012-2022) during the Rio+20 Earth Summit on June 20, 2012. The main campaign was called, One Million Rios. The launch was underpinned by the idea “Bringing Rio Home.”

Rio+22 UNSE4ALL India Program

The focus area of the 2014-2015 Rio+22 program was Sustainable Energy. It was a National Level effort in the form of a short-term co-curricular program for students. It was in synergy with United Nations General Assembly (A/RES/65/151) declared Decade of Sustainable Energy for All.

Rio+23 WHS India Program

The focus area of RIO+23 Program 2016-17 was to build momentum towards and beyond United Nations World Humanitarian Summit. It was in synergy with the principles of United Nations General Assembly Resolution 46/182.

Rio+24 IDRC India Program

The focus of Rio+24 IDRC India Program was based on the objectives of International Decade for People of African Descent and United Nations International Decade for the Rapprochement of Cultures (IDRC). It was in synergy with the principles of United Nations General Assembly Resolution Res 67/104 & 68/237.

RIO+25: UN Water Action Decade India Program

RIO+25 UN Water Action Decade India Program 2019-20 is part of the prestigious RIO Program (2012-2022). RIO+25 Program is in sync with the objectives of United Nations Water Action Decade.
