About M.Sc.Geology

With the ever-changing environmental elelments along with climate change, the study of geographical elements has become a fundamental part of the science communtiy. The Department of Geology, under the Faculty of Applied Sciences offers a 2 year post graduate program in geology which focuses in providing specialised geological aspects. The course is uniquely designed to provide the students with a curriculum exposure in the fundamental elements of geology such as natural resources, social science, geomorphology and hydrogeology. As a way of providing students with the most enriching exposure of this field, various studies in rock structures and their formation over time through evolution and their impact on the earth's surface are conducted. With our elite league of faculties and expert academic resources we go on to provide our students with the most guided learning experience, which delivers real time education with a practice academic significance. The program follows an impact based teaching methodology which seeks to impart within the students the most contemporary natural phenomenons such as volcanoes, earthquakes and floods along with the impact of climatic conditions on the rock structures. The program goes on to focus the development of the students’ career competencies, thus goes on to conduct field works as a way of enhancing their skillsets in surveying, assessing and mapping the earth surface.

Why Study M.Sc.Geology

Geology studies are related to some of the most vital natural elements such as energy, water, mineral resources, climate change and natural disasters. With increasing amount of disasters and the depletion of natural resources, the need for geologists has spiked in the recent decades. Therefore pursuing this program will equip the students with the relevant skill sets to navigate the scope of the industry in geology. The students can also get to work in the sustainability of the earth for the betterment of human welfare.
