of the program
A combination of undergraduate level hard core courses in Geology, Maths, Physics and Chemistry, along with optional courses from other sciences. The study areas of Geology include a basic understanding of the Earth and its dynamics, landforms and geomorphology, minerals and their crystal structure, rock types, structure of rocks. Study of minerals and rocks in laboratory and field.
Understanding igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary processes and their investigation using petrographic, geochemical and geophysical tools
Evolution of the Earth life through time
