Dean's Message


Welcome to the School of Environmental Science & Management at Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB). If you are a prospective student or recently admitted student, you have many reasons to enroll in the School of Environmental Science and Management (SESM) at Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB). Here, you will have unique professional and academic opportunities. We have two academic departments, offering multiple interdisciplinary programs at undergraduate and graduate level. As a forerunner in environmental education in Bangladesh, we aspire to provide an amicable learning environment for all and produce leaders of the future. In the current geological age of Anthropocene, human activity is the major force shaping the planet. Human induced environmental changes have already caused many of the earth’s ecosystems to reach critical tipping point of depletion and extinction. Pollution, climate change, water scarcity, food security, energy poverty, suburban sprawl, over consumption, excessive waste, biodiversity degradation- understanding the environment has never been so important.

We in the School of Environmental Science and Management at IUB provide a place for students to critically examine these environmental problems and thereafter to craft solutions leading to sustainable development. For this, we go beyond the disciplines within the School of Environmental Science and Management to combine science fundamentals with the economic, societal, cultural and political expertise. Our faculty members are profusely knowledgeable and have degrees from world’s prestigious universities. They have an unswerving dedication to provide a caring environment and a gateway to pursue lifelong learning for students. Since the beginning of our journey, faculty members are involved in different research projects where our students also contribute. To support research activities, we have state-of-the-art environmental science laboratory, GIS laboratory and biology laboratory where students are able to carry out world class research on different environmental issues. As part of the IUB’s broader vision, we have research collaborations with a good number of international and national academic institutions and research organizations. We also have student exchange programs with many prestigious universities in America and Europe. We believe SESM is the right place you have been looking for.

We hope you will join us in our effort to create a world which is more sustainable, equitable and peaceful.We believe SESM is the right place you have been looking for.
