About the Department


Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology and the subject Geology possess a century-old relationship. Many eminent geoscientists have offered their teaching and research expertise in the past. Previously teaching in Geology was introduced in this Institute to meet the need of the would-be engineering graduates only in Civil Engineering, Mining Engineering and Metallurgical Engineering branches. The science streams have emerged as an integral part of the Institute offering postgraduate degrees from 2001. The Department of Geology, however, has started to offer independent postgraduate courses in Geology after its separate identity as a science department since 2005. However, the department has evolved to the Department of Earth Sciences to host teaching and research in a wide spectrum of Earth Sciences. This diversification from classical Geology has helped students to undertake research programs in other interesting fields like Hydrogeology with an application of GIS and Remote Sensing, Geophysics, Environmental Geology, Geomorphology, Climatology, Mining Geology.

Students of the present department are being trained by permanent and eminent visiting faculty members involved in frontier areas of research like Hydrogeology, Environmental Geology, Experimental Structural Geology, Igneous & Metamorphic Petrology, Sedimentology, Sequence Stratigraphy, Basin tectonics, Palaeontology, etc. to cope up with the need of hydrogeological problems, natural hazard mitigation, petroleum or mineral exploration, and geoscience research at par with international standard. Students are also getting the facility of performing analog experiments in Experimental Geology Laboratory which will help students to understand the dynamics of Earth and process-response systems. The curriculum has been revised to meet the requirements of various Industries and National competitive examinations. The knowledge is helping them to get jobs in Government organizations like SWID, Geological Survey of India, Oil sectors, Mining Industries, and Academic Departments. Training of application of geological knowledge, which is essential for mine planning, handling other problems of mining geology and engineering geology are also being imparted to them in this course.
Within a short span of time, the department has been able to accommodate several numbers of research scholars for the Ph.D. degree. At this stage, they are enrolled and working on research problems in Hydrogeology, GIS-Remote Sensing applications, Environmental Geology, Sedimentology, Palaeontology and Structural geology with Mathematical modeling. For the purpose of study, the fund has been acquired through projects of the faculty members from the Department of Science & Technology, Govt. of India, University Grants Commission, ONGC & WBPDCL. The Department aims to focus on future efforts to undertake geoscience research with its application in multidisciplinary subjects.

Research Areas


1 Environmental Geology

The main objective of the research area is to carry out research on the recent challenges of environmental issues e.g. landslides,soil erosion,river bank erosion etc. To the researchers of Earth Sciences, knowledge of genesis of natural hazards with respect to the  geomorphological aspects, geological characteristics and climatic condition of the area are important. Ultimately the preparedness, mitigation of natural hazards to be planned for the purpose of development with respect to the socio-economic condition of the area.

2 Hydrogeology

Researchers of Earth Sciences have an important responsibility towards the crisis arising out of the scarcity of water around the globe. The present day society is affected by the challenges of water crisis, ground water contamination, inferior quality of water, saline water intrusion etc. Researchers of Earth Sciences carry out studies on the occurrence, physical and chemical attributes of water along with the exploration of groundwater resources. The studies need applications of the tools and ideas like different softwares GIS and Remote Sensing along with the hydrogeochemical analysis and applications of geophysical methods.

3 Igneous petrology and Geochemistry

Igneous rocks are abundant on Earth’s crust. Research work in the context of Igneous petrology involves Geochemical classification, isotope study of the igneous rocks reveals the source of the crystallised magma, their palaeo-environment (composition of mantle) of evolution and emplacement environment. This information on the other hand minutely reshapes the Archaean-Recent plate-tectonic models, Palaeo-subsurface environments (mantle to lower crust) from Archaean time.

4 Metamorphic Petrology and Thermodynamics

Metamorphosed rocks are the source of information to the several tectonic activities of Geological past. Pressures, temperature with the composition of fluids taking part in the metamorphism reveal the details of the metamorphic conditions. Researchers in this subject uses several thermodynamic models and mathematical calculations to determine the Palaeo-conditions responsible for metamorphism and this in turn reveals the nature of plate tectonic activities, thickness of the crust in Geological time, temperature of the Earth, nature of plate movements etc.

5 Sedimentology

Sedimentology constitutes the study of lithified and unlithified natural sediments, their composition, genesis, provenance and the processes that play a major role in their deposition. The study along with Sequence Stratigraphy aims to create predictive models to fathom the paleoclimate, basin evolution and economic potential of a basin. Experiments are undertaken in laboratory to study the key processes to generate depositional beds and events similar to a natural system.

6 Structural Geology and Tectonics

This has been established by the Earth Scientists that the Tectonic activity of the Earth’s surface is the external manifestation of internal dynamism of the Earth. Enormous tectonic forces are developed due to this tectonic activity. These trigger deformation of rocks which subsequently lead to the development of different complex structures. The trend of research in this domain is to understand the deformation-mechanisms of rocks through geometric, kinematic, dynamic analysis of rock structures and their relation to different tectonic environments.
