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.

Effects of different sources of water on growth of select vegetables in hydroponic system (OUR Project 2016-17)


Crop production using the Hydroponics culture is gaining immense popularity in the recent years, as it is a more efficient way to produce better quality plants in a shorter span of time compared to the traditional soil culture. (Trejo-Téllez and Gómez-Merino 2012)
