Combining years of industrial expertise and academic capabilities to deliver contemporary academic programmes
School of Energy and Environment (SEE), sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India under the FIST Program, is a multidisciplinary school that focuses on teaching, research, and outreach activities in the domain of environment. Our academic activities focus on problem-solving and creating work-ready graduates who are able to take real-life challenges once they graduated. By connecting scholars and practitioners from different disciplines, the School of Energy and Environment seeks to raise the quality of environment research at TIET and beyond.
The School has a very active research program that is done through student research as well as sponsored projects. The academic programs of the School have a long history of research excellence. The current research program of the School has several streams. R&D activities of the School currently include river water quality monitoring and management; metal bio-transformations; advanced oxidation processes; industrial environmental management; ambient air quality; and bioremediation; bioplastics; bioenergy; and hydrogen energy production through sustainable routes. The school has an excellent track record of placement in organizations of national and international repute.
Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) jointly with School of Energy & Environment (SEE) is pleased to announce an Industry-Oriented 2 Semester Online Continuing Education Program, Post Graduate Professional Development Program in "Energy Management & Climate Action” (Click the program for details)
School of Energy and Environment envisions to develop as a center of excellence in academics, multidisciplinary research, talent and leadership for pressing national and international environmental, energy and sustainability challenges.
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 policymakers, and the public.
In the spirit of Industry-Institute Partnership, and the development of the national partnership with leading institutions, recently School of Energy and Environment, TIET, and CII- Centre of Excellence for Competitiveness, Chandigarh have signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a program of collaboration on related matters of mutual interest including Curriculum Development of M.Tech (Energy Technology and Management) Program, Guest Lectures by Energy Experts from Industry, Student Internships in Industries and Energy Consultancy organizations, Certifications in ISO and Energy Efficiency, joint research projects in collaboration with Industry, etc. We have jointly initiated an Online Post-Graduate Program (2 Semesters) on "Energy Management and Climate Change" (Batch 1: November 2020 - June 2021; Batch 2: July 2021 - June 2022)
In addition, academic and research interactions have also been established with the National Institute of Bioenergy (NIBE), Kapurthala, and Central Building Research Institute (CBRI), Roorkee.
