Knowledge of geology is pivotal for sustenance of the modern civilizations. Without georesources, such as petroleum, natural gas, coal, minerals and water /groundwater, the advancement of civilization or a country is unthinkable. Geology is not only restricted to exploration of georesources, it also deals with the environmental degradation, climate change and geohazards like earthquake, volcanism, landslide etc.

The department has been playing the central role in disseminating knowledge on various aspects of geology and producing professonal geologist to serve the national interests as well as to contribute in the interntional arena.Researches by our faculty members and students have significant impacts in addressing national and global issues like energy crisis, groundwater contamination, geohazards assessment and mitigation, environmental pollution and sustainable development. Our alumni are working in various professional organizations at home and abroad with reputations.
