Message from head

We are a multidisciplinary team who conduct applied research and consultancy into the sustainable environment, alternative energy sources, hydrogen energy, environmental policy, bioremediation, atmospheric science and impacts of climate change on abiotic and biotic systems.

School of Energy and Environment (SEE) was carved out from the erstwhile Department of Biotechnology and Environmental Sciences with effect from the academic year 2013. We have extensive experience of work with the commercial sector, local government, central government, and research councils.

School of Energy and Environment has well-furnished and sophisticated environmental laboratories to develop the area of Environmental Science and Engineering at Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology. It draws on researchers, teachers, experts and students across India and offers them a platform to explore, innovate, integrate and solve complex social, technical and environmental issues. The School offers opportunities for public-private partnership to develop sustainable environment and energy options for future generations. It has qualified, competent and experienced faculty, involved in carrying out academic, consultancy and research activities since 1986. We make an impact through research and by teaching the next generation of students to understand and manage Earth’s resources, and by communicating our science to policy makers, and the public.
