The School of Environmental Science and Management (SESM) was established in 1993 and the Department of Environmental Management was formed as a part of the school.


Environmental Management has attained a great importance in all walks of life. In this regard, the Department of Environmental Management offers a good number of courses related to Natural Resources Management, which provides the students both with the fundamental knowledge of environmental study and the necessary skills to design sustainable environment management programmes. The courses include basic and elementary subjects like Graduate Biology, as well as specialized fields like Ecology and Conservation Biology, Forest Resources Management, Geographic Information Systems, Disaster Management, Environmental Impact Assessment etc. The courses are designed with sufficient classroom lecturers, laboratory works and field trips so that the students enjoy their time in discovering the mystery and rhythm of life, and nature like deep forests or wide sea-beach or vast green flood plains.

 

The courses are taught by talented and experienced faculties, couple of which is SESM graduates themselves.


Other than the Undergraduate Program, we also offer two Masters Programmes namely:

  • Masters in Natural Resources Management
  • Masters in Climate Change and Development

Other than the Undergraduate Program, we also offer two Masters Programmes namely:

The Department also includes two labs: The Biology Lab and the GIS Lab.


 

 

 

Importance of Studying Environmental Management

 

There has been a remarkable and refreshing interest in environmental issues over the past few years. Growing industrialization and development efforts has had deep rooted consequences on the global environment. The integrated nature of these consequences compels us to promote a cumulative approach to strengthening our environmental resources. With this in view the study of environmental science and management has become a matter of utmost importance.


Environmental Management involves the management of all components of the bio-physical environment, both living (biotic) and non-living (a biotic). The main role of environmental management is to manage the productive use of natural resources without reducing their efficiency and quality. It is a practice by which environmental resources and its health are regulated. 


In order to utilize our natural resources properly without reducing the productivity and natural quality, we need to know what kind of damages have been done by human to the nature as well as preventive measures for the upcoming disasters.


An undeniable truth is, even our billion years old earth is now failing to absorb the damages caused by human activities.


Many environmental issues have aroused drastically from the last decade such as green house effect, ozone layer depletion, melting of ice bergs, serious climatic changes etc which creates a disastrous path to reduce our earth’s life span. To avoid or prevent these sorts of natural issues, environmental studies play a major role in order to create an environmental awareness which helps to maintain the natural resources healthy and stable.


The environmental management studies or programs help us to know well about the major and minor environmental issues on the earth, so that we can find the solutions to fix it or we can prevent it well ahead, “Prevention is better than cure.” In order to know about the environmental issues what made by humans, there are many public and private organizations have come up with many environmental educational centers, environmental programs, ecological case studies etc. These studies will help us to learn in depth knowledge about the ecological damage as well as sustainable environmental damage control in a better way.

 

However, taking care of earth is the primary responsibility of every human in any kind of profession.


Let’s start thinking and save our environment!
