School of Ecology, Infrastructure and Human Settlement Management

About the School


Environment and ecology of the globe in the era of globalization and rapid urbanization are subjected to unprecedented stress. The resource destructive development practices compel the human settlements growing beyond the thresholds of sustainability. To address the environmental and ecological challenges confronting the developmental process today, the formation of a multidisciplinary research group for adopting alternative approaches for planning and management of human settlements and infrastructure development was felt necessary in the University with diversified human resource pool. The School of Ecology, Infrastructure and Human Settlement Management was established to conduct interdisciplinary and cutting edge research, postgraduate studies and extend technical support services on issues having the critical interface of ecology, human settlements and infrastructure development.
