· With good facility work on emerging aspects and with societal perspective such as disaster mitigation, GIS based planning, geotechnology, geoenvironmental and climate change studies is possible

Ø Challenges

· To cope up with emerging job oriented disciplines such as applied, industrial and private sector.

· Up gradation in knowledge and field based teaching.

· Develop knowledge of computational geology, geological modeling and simulations.

Ø Future Plans

· To upgrade departmental museum of geological specimens.

· To organize Exhibitions for students and stakeholders

· Increasing the research output to plan larger multidisciplinary projects with external funding and international collaborations is planned.

· Expansion of the department - by developing new laboratories for talented undergraduate students.
