Center for Environmental Sciences & Engineering (CESE)

Center with a strong multidisciplinary thrust on research, education and outreach in environmental sciences, engineering, and sustainability, in keeping with the global demand The Mission of the Center is to undertake focused high quality interdisciplinary basic and applied research on key areas of environmental issues crossing the boundaries of traditional disciplines to look at the relationship between humans and their environment, natural as well as built, and the sets of relationships between them from a variety of perspective leading to technology development and competency building in various areas related to environmental problems, thereby providing solutions to Indian industry and policy makers. 

The Center for Environmental Sciences & Engineering (CESE) was established under the aegis of the School of Natural Sciences (SoNS), Shiv Nadar University with an objective to create interdisciplinary research facility integrating fields of Science, Natural Resources, Engineering, Social Sciences, Public Policy and Law. 

The Center is envisioned to become a leader in environmental science research in the country by conducting problem-solving inter/multi-disciplinary research in niche areas and meeting the needs of the society, industry and national and international agencies/organizations. It provides advance training to students in areas such as environmental science, natural resource management, socio-economics, public policy and engineering from a perspective of sustainable development. Besides undertaking research the center aims to establish a tripartite relationship between academia, industry and the government agencies to nurture and support the growth of environmental science and technology. The Center is also actively engaged in outreach programs, including organizing workshops, conferences, training and extension activities, which attract participation from academia, industries and government and non-government sectors.
