Increasing global populations are placing unprecedented demands on limited earth resources, whilst extensive and often, uncontrolled development is exposing man to natural hazards that arise from the operation of various earth processes. The need for skilled geologists, especially in light of the current upswing of natural disaster related devastations is imperative for the continued survival of human and natural life. From detailed discussions of plate tectonics to the focus of natural resource exploration, students are educated into the intricacies of geology via lectures, laboratory practicals, tutorials, assignments and field trips.

Field trips are an integral part of the Geology Programme and all students will undertake a total of some four weeks of guided fieldwork, including geological mapping, at various sites in the country. Students will be trained to carry out independent research. They are required to submit a Project Report as a part of their undergraduate programme. This Project Report involving two Semesters of field or laboratory based geological studies.
