MANAV RACHNA INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF RESEARCH AND STUDIES
(Formerly MANAV RACHNA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY )
Department of Earth Science and Environment
Geology, integrated earth system science, provides understanding of solid earth, concerning a more sustainable exploitation of Earth resources and rising of awareness of geo-hazards. It provides wisdom about the raw materials needed for economic development of a nation and helps to generate a sense of reverence for Earth. Geological information can play a key role in addressing challenges of sustainable development such as land degradation and groundwater protection, earth resources and contribute to improved decision-making processes.
The National Capital Region is having reach repository of rocks and minerals and evidence Proterozoic to Recent age geological phenomenon which provides a location benefit for study and understanding process closely to built a professional who can take up geological challenges and solve it amicably. With this background ,the Department of Earth Science and Environment is being launched with its first programme in Applied Geology.
KEY HIGHLIGHTS and STREAMS OFFERED
The Department is committed to produce future geologists and geo-scientists having academic excellence. It is in process of developing facilities and laboratories. The curriculum includes contents which will enable to not only equip with latest know how but will also support to clear various competitive examinations, so as to enter into satisfying career. It will also include recent developments and practices adopted country wide by the industry, in the fields of petroleum exploration, geo-technical, energy and mineral exploration. The curriculum of B.Sc- M.Sc. Geology Programme includes extensive field work, geological mapping, visits etc and it is designed in such a way that it is easier for the students to adapt in the role of professional.
On the onset, the Department is making efforts to have laboratories well equipped with several instruments like petrographic and paleontological microscopes along with samples and thin sections of all major rock types, minerals, and fossils.These will be procured from geologically important locations of India and abroad. The collection of samples and infrastructure related to equipments is underway with the support of university funds.
