ABOUT US


Introduction of Institution :

Amity Institute of Environmental Science (AIES) is an interdisciplinary centre of learning, established as a part of Amity University Uttar Pradesh, Noida. This institute is currently running two Masters Programmes, viz. M.Sc. (Environmental Sciences) and M.Sc (EHS&M). One objective at AIES is to develop this Institute as a ‘Centre of Excellence’ in the field of Environmental Science and Technology. Apart from education the institute intends to impart special training to students who can handle the emerging environmental various problems faced by the industries and the society on both the technological and environmental fronts. The academic programmes of the institute are reviewed / revised periodically and updated, keeping in mind the need for the changes desired in curriculum like new courses or upgrading of individual courses or introduction of specific programmes. The Institute also offers Ph.D. programme in research related to Environmental Sciences and Technology. Faculty members of the institute are from diverse fields of specialization ranging from Environmental Engineering, Environmental Biotechnology, Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), Microbial Ecology, Environmental Toxicology, Environmental Chemistry, immunodiagnostics for pollutant/pesticides, Energy and Environmental Management, Environmental Modeling and Management to Sustainable Development in environment.

Programme Objective :

Post Graduate programmes in Environmental Science are interdisciplinary programs, with an emphasis on environmental analyses, pollution control, climate change, impact assessment and biodiversity conservation.

The main objectives of the course are:

  • To impart knowledge of environmental problems of regional and global scale;
  • To train the students for scientific analyses of environmental components for critical understanding, efficient environmental decision-making and management.
  • To prepare them for global competence for career options in education, research, industries, consultancy, environmental journalism etc.
  • To train the students for Environmental Impact Assessment and for management systems
  • To understand the impacts of climate change and to develop mitigation strategies
  • To prepare students for designing, conducting independent research in the area of their interest.
  • To sensitize students towards developing the earth as a green planet for a clean habitat for all living forms.



MESSAGES

Message From Director :

World environment is confronting severe pressure from ever increasing demand and use of resources from the over 7 billion world population. This has brought the human race at the present critical juncture where effects of the by-products from the resource usage have reached a state of near non-reversibility. These by-products have posed serious problems that are currently threatening the very survival of Earth's life-support system. We, at Amity look upon them not as the insurmountable but as the opportunity to strive and excel in generating technological solutions. This is in line with the beliefs of the Amitians, and therefore, we understand our great social responsibility and recognize that the very survival of our race hinges on inventing viable solutions for these problems.

The most challenging of these issues is the CO2 emissions which is gradually changing the key life support systems of the Earth. Energy crisis is the next challenge. All renewable like-solar, wind, bio-mass, hydro etc. in all its forms are diffused sources and hence, apart from current high costs, are limited to catering to peak power demands, and not as the base power sources. A lot of work still needs to done to bring them to the grid parity with thermal/nuclear power plants.

The next big environmental problem looming on the Indian horizon is the serious water crisis. Technologies must be developed for ensuring supply of adequate clean water. Management of solid waste produced by ever expanding urban population requires out-of-the-box thinking for solution.

At Amity we have launched the Amity Environment Mission and have taken a few initiatives under it covering the above areas of the environment. As academics, it is our prime objective to sensitize the student on various issues & problems and prepare to him through quality education for becoming a part of the solution, and not merely an observer from the sideline.

Objectives of the Institute :
  • To develop an insight and compassion for environment in the students.
  • To enhance the quality of the student learning experience
  • To promote and foster creativity and innovation in academic delivery
  • To promote environmental Research and Management Practices
  • To prepare students for high level scientific research, organizational and academic work.
  • To obtain wide knowledge in the field of environmental science and to offer contribution in the development of science.

Vision :

“Providing total, integrated quality education and research in the field of environment.”
