There is increasing awareness and concern of society regarding environmental issues. The Swatch Bharat Abhiyan and Namo Ganga Project to clean the River Ganges are recent program initiated by our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. Natural disasters like earth quake, which occurred in Kutch on 26th January 2001 and the rarest of the rare, a powerful earth quake and a devastative tsunami, led to a serious situation in Fukushima, Japan, on 11thMarch 2011 causing misery to thousands of people. Environmental planning and management can reduce the damage both to the material and human lives. Every industry today realizes the necessity to control the environmental pollution resulting from industrial processes. The need to generate a trained and knowledgeable work force, which can provide the necessary expertise in environmental issues and who have a basic understanding of the environment in its totality, is being widely felt. Conservation of natural resources like fossil fuels, water, soil and minerals and protecting biodiversity losses are to be better understood and practiced. Protection of forests is to be done on priority basis, which can make this planet a healthier place to live. Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary academic field that integrates physical and biological sciences (including but not limited to ecology, physics, chemistry, biology, soil science, geology, atmospheric science, oceanography and geography) to study the environment and the solution of environmental problems. We welcome change and drive students to expand their thinking and apply the foundations of the subject matter to solve environmental problems.
