Brief statement of the aims and purposes of the School
-------------------------------------------------------
The School aims to impart education at the post graduate level to students having diverse backgrounds in science and engineering. The School also offers a post graduate diploma course to working professionals from the industry. The School of Environmental Studies conducts research on current environmental issues and thereby trains students through offering Ph.D. degrees. Some of the current areas of interest are microbial diversity, bioconversion of waste materials, intertidal biofilms, marine sponge pathogenesis and groundwater arsenic and fluoride contamination as well as tackling other environmental hazards. The School, in its interdisciplinary characteristic, regularly interacts with the Civil, Mechanical, Chemical Engineering as well as with Pharmacy, Chemistry, Biotechnology and Economics departments of Jadavpur University through its teaching and research programmes. The School of Environmental Studies has collaborations with the Technical University of Kaiserslautern (Germany), Australian Institute of Marine Science (Australia), West Bengal Pollution Control Board and IFB Agro Industries (Kolkata). The post graduate students of the School mostly take up Ph.D. positions in the IITs and other national institutes. The Ph.D. students pursued their further careers in reputed institutions such as Max Planck Institute, Harvard University, Nanyang Technological University, Indian Institute of Petroleum as well as leading industry houses.

A brief history
