Welcome to the website for Soil, Water and Environment Discipline

Soil, Water, and Environment Discipline (formerly Soil Science Discipline) started its academic activities in 1998-1999, introducing an undergraduate program that offers a four-year Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree divided into eight terms. For thousands of years, soil and water use have been important and fundamental factors in human survival. Climate and demographic trends have made them more important than ever - both locally and globally. Since soil, water, and the environment are the major concerns at all societal levels, the discipline offers a four-year Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree in Soil, Water and Environment since 2017. Course curricula of this discipline are designed aiming at providing the basic and applied knowledge necessary for building skills and capacity in the graduates for conducting diversified research and their application in the field of soil, water, agriculture and environment at regional, national as well as global scale. The entity facilitates its graduates with the support of five well-equipped laboratories (Soil Physics, Soil Chemistry, Soil Microbiology, Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition, and Soil Processing and Digestion) for conducting research and practical/sessional works. It also supports its graduates with a seminar library enriched with updated books, journals, periodicals, reports and magazines. Its curricula offer opportunities for observation of the field-level applications of the theories learned at the classroom level through short and long field study tours and visits to relevant institutions, research organizations and industries, encourage and support participation in sports and cultural programs and competitions for building leadership and teamwork attitude, and promote for building self-awareness and responsibility for societal well-being. The program prepares its graduates for building their careers in a variety of educational and research institutes, GOs, NGOs and private consultation farms as scientists, experts, analysts, advisors, consultants and entrepreneurs. It also builds confidence and aspiration for perusing higher educational degrees at home and abroad. This program offers an array of multidisciplinary courses for providing a solid foundation in soil, water and environment for developing new knowledge in soil’s physical, chemical and biological domains necessary for addressing relevant SDGs, Delta plans, regional and global crises. This program intends to incorporate skills in the graduates for the efficient dealing with the issues of fertility, productivity and biodiversity of the ecosystems, soil, water and environmental health, management, conservation and sustenance of the natural resources, environmental impact assessment and monitoring, attenuation of health risk of plant, animal and human. It also takes up the challenges of feeding the increasing world population, developing methods for enhancing carbon sequestration for combating climate change, provisioning soil ecosystem services with the ultimate objective of ensuring a healthy planet for living and human well-being.

I am delighted to welcome you to Soil, Water and Environment Discipline (SWED), Khulna University. We offer Bachelor of Science (BSc) programs in Soil, Water and Environment, Master of Science (MS) program in Soil Science, and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program in Soil, Water and Environment. The SWE Discipline has a faculty consisting of 14 outstanding scientists and comprises breadth and depth of expertise in research, teaching, and extension of environmental science, defined here as basic to the applied science of the Earth’s land surface and its impacts on human health and welfare. SWED focuses on that portion of the Earth’s near-surface termed the “critical zone” that extends from the lower atmospheric boundary to the lower depth of circulating groundwater, and which includes vegetation and soil, sediment, vadose and saturated zones. We appreciate your interest in the SWED. We encourage you to explore this website and let us know if you have any questions or comments.
