Message From Head

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, a Master of Science (MS) program in Soil Science, and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program in Soil, Water and Environment. The SWE Discipline has a faculty consisting of 15 outstanding scientists, and comprises breadth and depth of expertise in research, teaching and extension of environmental science, defined here as basic to 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.
