B Tech in Geoscience and Engineering

Why B Tech @ Geoscience and Engineering

Geoscience and Engineering is a special branch of engineering which deals with advancements in technology for exploration, exploitation and management of natural resources. It also deals with –

  • Mechanism of earth processes such as earthquakes, landslides, floods, and volcanic eruptions.
  • Prediction of uncertainty associated with physical processes of earth systems.
  • Evaluation of a site on which a tunnel, dam, or road might be built.
  • Development of models to minimize the disaster associated with natural and man-made processes.

A Unique Course to Sync your Passion with your Career

Passion for Earth Sciences

For those with a keen fascination for the various natural phenomena that mold our planet, such as the movement of plates, drifting of continent, mountains building processes, and movement of underground system, geoscience engineering presents an ideal career path to pursue. The field of geoscience engineering integrates geological and geophysical expertise with engineering concepts for comprehending and regulating the subsurface structure of the planet.

Unique Blend of Science and Engineering

Geoscience engineering combines the principles of geology, geography, physics, chemistry, and mathematics with engineering concepts to study and manage the earth's subsurface. This interdisciplinary approach provides a unique set of skills that can be applied in various industries, such as energy, mining, environmental management, and construction.

Growing Demand

In the upcoming years, there will likely be an increase in the demand for geoscience engineers, notably in the fields of environmental sustainability and energy transition.
