The Department of Environmental Sciences was established at Government College Women University, Sialkot in October 2015. The faculty of the department includes highly qualified teachers who are actively involved in teaching. At present, the department is offering BS 4 years program. It is an integrated program designed to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the fundamentals of Biological and Natural Sciences in solving environmental problems. The program focuses on originating a new generation of research and teaching methods that understand the issues, and arrive at solutions to diminish societal problems; prepares its graduates to understand environmental systems, predict environmental change, participate in the management of the environment, and contribute to the formation of a sustainable society.
The graduates are expected to play a critical role in coordinating multi-disciplinary input to assure successful deployment that is necessary in meeting emerging environmental challenges in Pakistan, throughout the region and around the globe.
This program provides an integrated, quantitative, and interdisciplinary approach to the study of environmental systems. The magnitude and complexity of environmental problems are creating a growing need for scientists with rigorous, interdisciplinary training in environmental science. The curriculum of Environmental Science is designed to prepare students for positions of leadership in this rapidly evolving discipline. The graduates of this program have a solid foundation in Biological and Physical Natural sciences and the specialized training necessary for integrated analysis of environmental systems.
There is strong world demand for scientists, technologists, and engineers with multi-disciplinary training to confront the need for a healthy environment as the global human ecological footprint expands.
