School Of Applied Sciences committed to Sustainable Development Goal 15: “LIFE ON LAND”

The School of Applied Sciences (SoAS) offers Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) program for 3 years, Master of Science (M.Sc.) program for 2 years and M. Phil for 1 years. Apart from SDG 15 the school contributes significantly to SDGs 4,7,12,13 and 14. These programs are offered from four campuses of the University, namely, Paralakhemundi, Bhubaneswar, Bolangir and Rayagada. In keeping with the skill orientation of the University, these programs are application oriented with strong skill integration.

Interdepartmental Collaborations:

Besides the programs given below, the University also offers courses in inter-disciplinary areas of CUTM+2 Science(CHSE & CBSE), Bachelor and Masters programs in Management, Computer Applications and Vocational disciplines (ITI) of the (GTET & Skill Developments).

The syllabus of the programmes are duly approved by the Academic Councils of the University under guidance and participation of academic institutions of repute such as NISER, IIT, R&D and industry partners like Infosys, TCS and the like. As a matter of policy, The syllabus are periodically reviewed and updated every three years. The review of B.Sc. Honours programmes are being undertaken this year under this policy.


The campus is equipped with state-of-art laboratories, class rooms with audio-visual aids and well-stocked libraries. There are Physics Laboratories, Chemistry Laboratories, Computing & Mathematics Laboratory dedicated for the above mentioned programs.

The Campus and water:

Our school is committed to the sustainable use of water.The university campus has massive use of water at different hostels, staff quarters and office. The campus is using a total of 279000 lit/day, which is a big amount cannot be ignored. Hence water treatment is matter of
concern. Looking towards requirement of water for human, animal and agriculture use, the university has set its own Sewage Treatment Tank (STP) inside the campus.

Looking towards the massive use of water, water treatment plant is required in the campus. In case of water crisis the treatment water can be used for gardening farming purposes. Centurion campus has a very big garden of about 5 acres which needs lot of water and the water from the treatment plant can be used for gardening. Our campus borrows water from a very far place which is highly expensive. During rainy season a large amount of water wasted by flowing through drainage which can be used by the campus through treatment process. Since there is B.Sc. Agriculture in the college the treatment water can be used by the students for plantation. Many new buildings are being constructed inside the campus which needs a large amount of water for curing the bricks and watering the foundation, wall and slab. To certain extent the treated water can meet the demand of construction works. During summer the water supply to the hostel is just time to time and not regular so treatment plant is highly essential to this site. Thousands of gallons of water is used by the students, staff and mess members lot of water is wasted through drains so, constructing a treatment is very important. The drain water is deposited in the tank but of no use after the tank is filled the water is removed and wasted. Since there is a hill nearby our site there comes a large amount of surface runoff water which
can be treated for our domestic use. To avoid further future a problem regarding water a waste water treatment plant is definitely required.
It is essential to access the quality of the waste water coming from the university campus. The following are the conventional test to be carried out in establishing the water quality. The recorded data of different tests of waste water are described in the figures 1, 2 & 3 below.

Sewage treatment plant:

Looking towards the growing environmental pollution, the quality of water has become both public health and agriculture concern. Hence waste water needs to be decontaminated, especially domestic sewage. In the past, domestic waste water treatment was mainly confined to organic carbon removal. Recently, increasing pollution in the waste water leads to developing and implementing new treatment techniques to control nitrogen and other priority pollutants. Pollution in its broadest sense includes all changes that curtail natural utility and exert deleterious effect on life. The crisis triggered by the rapidly growing population and industrialization with the resultant degradation of the environment causes a great threat to the quality of life. Degradation of water quality is the unfavourable alteration of the physical, chemical and biological properties of water that prevents domestic, commercial, industrial, agricultural, recreational and other beneficial uses of water. Sewage and sewage effluents are the major sources of water pollution. Sewage is mainly composed of human faecal material, domestic wastes including washwater and industrial wastes. Sewage Treatment Plant is a facility designed to receive the waste from domestic, commercial and industrial sources and to remove materials that damage water quality and compromise public health and safety when discharged into water receiving systems. It includes physical, chemical, and biological processes to remove various contaminants depending
on its constituents. Using advanced technology it is now possible to re-use sewage effluent for drinking water.

Plant capacity:
• Maximum daily demand = 180 lit/day
• Average water supply per day = 180 x 1550 =279000 lit = 279cu.m
• Average sewage generated per day = 85% of supplied water
= 0.85 x 279=223 m3
• Average sewage generated per hour=223/24=9.29 cu.m/hr
• Peak factor = 3
• Design flow capacity (maximum) = 9.29 x 3=27.85 cu.m/hr
