About Us


Department of Earth and Environmental Studies


The Department was started in early 1960’s as Department of Geology and later renamed as Department of Earth and Environmental Studies in 2012 because of spread of activities of the department on environment issues, mainly in research and teaching.

The Department is the coordinating department for multidisciplinary M.Tech. Programme in “Environmental Science and Technology” from the academic session 2009-2010, presently involving four departments of the Institute.

The Department is supporting the UG courses of the Institute offering a compulsory subject to all First year students on environment. It also caters specifically to Metallurgical and Materials Engineering and Civil Engineering students by offering compulsory theory and laboratory subjects. The Departmental laboratories are well equipped to serve the needs of the students. The Department is equipped with various equipments, required for Earth and Environmental Studies courses, including Research Model Polarizing Microscopes (for both transmitted light and incident light), Student Model Microscopes, Polarizing Micro projector and rich collection of models, charts, rocks and mineral specimens. A well-equipped environmental laboratory has also been set up in the department to serve the post graduate students of Environmental Science and Technology and to augment research and consultancy facilities in this emerging field.

The Department offers facilities for research activities to faculties and research scholars of the Institute. Present fields of research include various problems related to environment, application of RS & GIS in resource management, etc. Presently, ten research scholars are carrying out their research in the department. The Department also undertakes consultancy jobs on environmental and geological issues with particular expertise on groundwater study.
