Welcome to Earth and Environmental Sciences
पृथ्वी एवं पर्यावरण विज्ञान विभाग में आपका स्वागत है ।
BSMS programme in the Earth and Environmental Sciences is introduced during 2022-2023.
It is another emerging interdisciplinary area of research and technology application. It directly influences the present and future of our planet and delves into the challenging domains of climate change. Global warming, alternative energy, CO2 sequestration, natural hazards and mitigation, disaster management and early warning system, exploration and judicious exploitation of natural resources, groundwater recharge, and conservation, among others. Integrated studies on the geosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere provide a unique opportunity to apply fundamental principles of physical, chemical, and mathematical sciences in understanding the evolution of our planet and life in particular. Earth system science extends into the emerging area of planetary sciences as well, for example, the Mars and Lunar Missions and the search for extra- terrestrial life (Exobiology).
The students completing this will be competent for careers in Academia, and R&D. Professional fields such as the mineral and mining industry and urban planning are some other career prospects. At the end of the 4th year, students may opt for a one-year MS research project and obtain a BS-MS dual degree in Geological Sciences after its successful completion.
