Introduction Environmental Science

BS in Environmental Sciences was started in Faisalabad campus in 2020. Environmental Sciences is the interdisciplinary subject which uses knowledge of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and other related subjects to understand natural processes and human impacts in the atmosphere, aquatic systems, and soils. The B.S. program is designed to prepare the students with concept, methods and field experience in the subjects including Environmental Microbiology, Air Quality, Water and Waste Water Treatment, Solid Waste Management, Environmental Chemistry, Water Resource Management and Sanitation, Environmental Laws and Policies, Environmental Hazards and Natural Disasters, Environmental Policy and Management, Occupational Hygiene, Health Safety and Environment and Environmental Ethics. The department has fully equipped laboratories and research units to support the teaching, learning and research activities. A variety of openings and career opportunities in government sector, industry, private companies and consulting firms are available for students graduating with a BS degree in Environmental Sciences.  

The aim of launching this program is to provide an educational environmental where quality education can be imparted to the youth and to involve various sectors of the society e.g engineers, technologists, doctors, policy makers, funding agencies, investors, importers, exporters, media educators and all sorts of professionals forming a joint effort to encounter environmental issues.

  • Students will learn how the natural world works
  • Students will learn to work as a Team 
  • Students will learn to communicate effectively.
  • Students will learn to understand how humans interact with the environment.
  • To find ways to deal with environmental problems and live more sustainably.
  • At UET FSD Campus, Chemistry and Environmental Science laboratories are equipped with modern instruments which help students with the practical knowledge of the subject. 
  • The library at Campus offers a wide array of advanced educational services. 
  • It is equipped with thousands of books related to curricula and general knowledge and periodic journals to promote scholarly interests and research activities. ·
  • FSD Campus organizes different demand-driven activities, such as training programs, international conferences, seminars, workshops, business idea competitions, industrial tours and recreational trips. 
  • The graduates of UET, FSD Campus are making their mark in many industries across the world 
  • FSD Campus organizes different workshops which enhance the student’s learning
