Department Geology
Level Undergraduate

Geology is an Earth science concerned with the solid earth, the rock of which it is composed and the processes by which they change over time. Geology can refer to the study of the solid features of any planet or natural satellite.

About the Course

Geology is an Earth science concerned with the solid earth, the rock, its other solid structures, its minerals, its physical and chemical properties, its water resources and which it is composed and the processes by which they change over time. Geology can refer to the study of the solid features of any planet or natural satellite(Such as Mars or the Moon).

Geology describes the structure of the earth beneath its surface, and the processes that have shaped structure. An important of geology is the study of how earth’s materials, structures processes and organisms have changed overtime.

Geology is the science of solid Earth and the rocks of which it is composed. Far from being the science of stuffy old men in classrooms, Geology can be one of the most exciting subjects to study at our college. Students of Geology will have plenty of opportunities to travel around the different parts of India for field work.

Why GIS as an Add-On?

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) store, analyze and visualize data for geographic positions on Earth’s surface. GIS is a computer-based tool that examines spatial relationships, patterns and trends. By connecting geography with data, GIS better understands data using a geographic context.

The 4 main ideas of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are:

Create geographic data.
Manage it in a database.
Analyze and find patterns.
Visualize it on a map.

Because viewing and analyzing data on maps impacts our understanding of data, we can make better decisions using GIS. It helps us understand what is where. Analysis becomes simple. Answers become clear.

Stands for “Global Positioning System.” GPS is a satellite navigation system used to determine the ground position of an object.

Remote sensors collect data by detecting the energy that is reflected from Earth. These sensors can be on satellites or mounted on aircraft.

Remote sensors can be either passive or active. Passive sensors respond to external stimuli. They record natural energy that is reflected or emitted from the Earth’s surface. The most common source of radiation detected by passive sensors is reflected sunlight.

In contrast, active sensors use internal stimuli to collect data about Earth. For example, a laser-beam remote sensing system projects a laser onto the surface of Earth and measures the time that it takes for the laser to reflect back to its sensor.

Remote sensing has a wide range of applications in many different fields

B.Sc Geology

Explore The Earth and Discover your New world of Opportunities

The B. Sc. Geology programme is designed to:
1. Provide basic knowledge of different branches of Geology at graduate level.
2. Understand the Earth and its various processes, both external and internal that shape it.
3. Assess the Earth as source of natural resources such as water, minerals, rocks, ores, coal and oil and devise ways and means to extract these for benefit of mankind.
4. Realize the threat of natural disasters and and work out ways to mitigate its effects.
5. Recognize the Earth as an environmental realm and chalk out plans for conserving its resources.
The pogramme shall normally extend over a period of three academic years consisting of six semesters.

A pass in Plus Two / Equivalent examination with any two of the following subjects .


All the candidates admitted for the course should register with the M.G University along with the original certificate of the qualifying examinations within 3 months from the date of commencement of the I semester programme.
A candidate shall normally be permitted to register and appear for the end semester university examinations if
(a) He/She secured not less than grade C for attendance in each course of study in the semester, and
(b) His/Her progress is satisfactory in the internal assessment in each of the course.
Diverse job opportunities exist in front of geologists in India. Job profile of a geologist depends upon his/her qualifications and specialization. Government as well as private sector job opportunities exist in front of Indian geology graduates. Variety of companies offer job to geologist like Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), Geological survey of India (GSI), CPWD, TWAD, PWD, DGM, and many private and government organizations with interests in Natural Resource Exploitation.

The research degrees provide a higher level of training often in a geology specially areas such as paleontology mineralogy hydrology or volcano logy. Employment opportunities for geologists very good.
