LIFE AT CEES
The mission of the College is to groom the students into responsible, honest citizens and skilled professionals trained in their respective fields to serve the nation. Character building and moral training are an integral component of the student – teacher relationship. Student life in the College provides the students with all possible opportunities to acquire the most dynamic personalities with leadership qualities. Academically excellent and experienced faculty members are involved in teaching and research in the CEES. Classes are regularly held, well supplemented with laboratory work and observations in the field.
- Field Work
Field trips are arranged on a regular basis for all programs. Field work is a part of the curriculum representing active learning through hands-on experience with the natural resources in different environmental situations and its presentation and compilation in the form of a field report. Field work is an integral part of training in the subjects of Environmental Sciences, Applied Hydrology, Tourism & Hospitality Management and Occupational Health & Safety. Students (male and female) carry out fieldwork in at least five days during the course of a semester. They study Geological aspects, Biodiversity, Ecosystems, Solid Waste dumpsites, Environmental Hazards and various other aspects related to Environmental Sciences in the existing situation in the field. Students of Hydrology visit the dams, water bodies and catchment areas while students of THM visit the various tourists, historical, recreational and archaeological sites and famous hotels for having a closer look at Hospitality Management. In the end, they are required to submit a comprehensive field report. This carries the marks as prescribed in the syllabus. Students unable to carry out field training are considered fail in the field work/report writing paper. They are required to carry out the field studies in the next semester with their junior class.
- Co-curricular Activities
Co-curricular activities represent an integral part of the curriculum. Such activities are regularly arranged at the College especially on all important days like Earth Day, World Environment Day, Wetland Day, Water Day, World Tourism Day, etc. The Annual Sports Gala, Debates, Documentary competitions, Poster and Photography competitions, Poetry and Quiz competitions are also held.
Important days like Pakistan Day, Independence Day, Iqbal Day, Quaid Day, etc. are also celebrated. Special seminars are held and students themselves organize these programs along with the Event Organizing Committee consisting of faculty members.
