As postgraduate programs, the research themes are directed towards local environmental issues. IESE can address real-life challenges and, as a result, benefit people from all walks of life. Our research benefits from strong synergy that has been developed between science, engineering and management disciplines. This provides a powerful combination of skills and capability that ensures both industrial relevance and academic rigor. This complements our state-of-the-art research and development facilities that differentiate the IESE research activities from other universities/institutes.
Well thought-out courses build an understanding of the fundamental principles of physical, chemical, and biological processes, employing mathematics and computational tools where relevant. The programme strives for appropriate balance between theory, computation and experimental observation, including both laboratory and field-scale experiments. It offers a healthy balance between research and practical application.
IESE has a wide range of facilities and equipment to support research activities. Some of our key facilities include: Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, Gas Chromatography, X-Ray Fluorescence, Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy, Laser Particle Size Analyzer, Total Organic Carbon Analyzer, Thermocycler, Fluorescent imaging, UV/Vis Spectrophotometer, etc.
Teaching & Research labs are available in the institute which include Water and Wastewater Lab, Environmental Biotechnology Lab, Air, Noise & Solid Waste Lab, Microbiology Lab, Chemistry Lab, Instrumentation Lab and Computer Lab to facilitate students to promote their research work in their respective areas.
