Faculty of Science & Environment

The Faculty of Science and Environment came in existence since the inception of the university (Chitrakoot Gramodaya Vishwavidyalaya, established in 1991 by M.P. Act ). In the initial phase, department of Biological Science was started under the leadership of Prof. Prabha Grower. Later on, undergraduate courses with various subject combinations were stated in July, 1992 under the leadership of Prof. A. L. Kirkire (as Dean).  At the same time, P.G. programme in Environmental Science was started in the leadership of Dr. Pramod Singh. In 1996, P.G. programme in Industrial Chemistry was started under the coordinatorship of Prof. I.P. Tripathi. Later, PG programme in Remote Sensing and GIS for Natural Resources Management was started after the approval of UGC, New Delhi under the Innovative Programme of UGC scheme in 2004 in the leadership of Dr. Shashikant Tripathi. At present, Faculty of Science and Environment comprises three Departments (Physical Sciences, Biological Sciences and Energy & Environment) covering almost all the branches in modern science. It offers B.Sc. (IT, Computer Science, Geology, Mathematics, Biological science with many subject combinations), BCA, P.G.DCA, DCA and M.Sc. courses in most disciplines like M.Sc.  in Botany, Zoology, Geology, IT, Mathematics, Biochemistry , Industrial Chemistry, Environmental Science, Remote Sensing and GIS, Geoinformatics, and Biotechnology. Faculty is running research in all the above mentioned disciplines. The Faculties have expertise in various related fields and are engaged in advanced research activities.  The Faculty of Science and Environment keeps itself alive with regular academic activities like seminars, workshops and conferences. It is equipped with advanced and sophisticated laboratories in some discipline like Chemistry and RS & GIS. Faculty members have liaison with research institutions of repute in India and abroad. Some teachers of the Faculty have received distinctions and honors like P.C. Ray award in Chemistry.

Dean of the Faculty

Prof. Indra Prasad Tripathi has made outstanding contribution towards research and re-standardization of traditional formulation of anti-diabetic and antiseptic drugs using new techniques and methods. He has simultaneously made remarkable contributions towards the synthesis, characterization of metal complexes with their anti-diabetic properties, antioxidant activity, superoxide dismutase mimicking activity, free radical scavenging activity, catalytic behavior etc. Prof. Tripathi has also worked on synthesis, characterization of carbon nanotubes. He made carbon nanotubes through metal complexes with natural proteins like spinach, egg albumins using various spectroscopic, diffraction/scattering, electrochemical characterization tools. Prof. Tripathi has significant contribution in environmental monitoring, sanitation, diffuse chemical pollution and green chemistry. His innovative contribution on water, air and diffuse chemical pollution of Bundelkhand and Vindhan Pleatue of the country is appreciable.

Prof. Tripathi has been invited as speaker in the UAE-3rd International conference on Chemistry for Sustainable Development: Indian Prospective and Nepal-3rd International conference on Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology.
