Department of Environmental Science

  Considering the geographical location, social setup, proximity to ecologically sensitive areas and global scenario, Environmental Science was opted at the post graduate level course of this College. The post graduation course in Environmental Science was started in the year 2001 in association with the Department of Zoology with student strength of 10, later by marginal increase the student strength increased to 13. The course was succeeded in the following years under the leadership of Dr. M.I. Georgekutty, Head, Department of Zoology and excellent teaching faculties’ viz. Dr. V. S. Jose Kumar, Mrs. Saramma George, Mrs. Leenamma and Dr. P. Unnikrishnan.

   In the year 2010, the post graduation course in Environmental Science was regularized by the Government of Kerala and by February 2012, four permanent teaching faculties were appointed accordingly. From the next academic year onwards (June, 2012), the Department is bifurcated from Zoology Department as a new Post Graduate Department of Environmental Sciences under the leadership of Dr. Jude Emmanuel, along with Dr. Brilliant Rajan, Mrs. V. Kaladevi and Dr. Anila George.

   As a relevant subject for the economic and wellbeing of human society, we can proudly say that the Department is doing commendable activities to achieve maximum pass percentage with distinction and to enlighten all the students in the college about the importance of protection and conservation of our natural resources and consequences of unsustainable activities and indiscriminate release of pollutants. As an extension activity, we are doing consultancy services in the water and wastewater management and there is a Water and Wastewater Testing Laboratory approved by Kerala State Pollution Control Board working in the Department since 2005, which was then upgraded to commercial category in 2013.

   We anticipate and are working hard for the next phase of development of this department to elevate this department as an Advanced Research Centre in Environmental Science and Climatic Change under University of Kerala. We hope at the wonderful milestone to come in near future.
