DEPARTMENT OF MARINE GEOLOGY & GEOPHYSICS
Academic / Research Programs
CUSAT was the first University in the Country to start a full-fledged post graduate programme in Marine Geology in the year 1976, taking into account the global advancement in general and national needs in particular in the field of Marine Geosciences. A three year M.Sc.(Tech) programme in Marine Geophysics was subsequently introduced in 1992 as a logical extension to the existing Marine Geology programme, which has now been restructured into a 2-year M.Sc. programme in Marine Geophysics. Both the programmes are complementary in nature and have been designed to aim at the development of manpower in the field of applied geology and geophysics with a special emphasis on off shore areas with a view to cater the needs of various research institutions and survey organizations as well as private companies engaged in oil and mineral exploration, sea bed surveys, remote sensing and groundwater prospecting etc.
