  1. Brief Introduction of the Department :

The Department of Geology had started in 1946 for teaching B.Sc. and M.Sc. Classes under the headship of Professor G. W. Chiplonkar. In the year 1956, the Department of Applied Geology started independently offering three years post graduate course leading to M. Tech. Degree (6 semesters) in Applied Geology under the headship of Professor W. D. West. After six years, both the departments (Pure and Applied Geology) were merged into the Department of Applied Geology.The department was expanded when it enjoyed the status of a Centre of “Advanced Study in Geology” from 1963 to 1974. At present 32 students are admitted in M. Tech. I - Semester.

The department has laboratory of Major thrust areas of Applied Micropaleontology, Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology, Crystal optics and Mineralogy, Remote Sensing and GIS Ore Microscopy and Economic Geology, Sedimentology, Environmental Geology, Groundwater and Engineering Geology, and Geochemistry with basic laboratory equipments required for teaching and research on various aspects in the major thrust area identified under R & D Programme. The students are given field training in geological mapping, mineral exploration, groundwater exploration, oil exploration and water resource management from three to four weeks in even semesters.
