Welcome to School of Earth Sciences

In the P.G. Centre of Shivaji University at Solapur, M.Sc. in Applied Geology course started in 1984. In due course of time, M.Sc Geoinformatics and M.Sc. Environmental Science Courses were added with the renaming of the unit as the School of Earth Sciences. The School has developed very good laboratories, made collections of geological specimens and enhanced research activities.

The Geological Museum in the school is visited regularly by College and School students. Faculty in the school have proven national credit by getting sanctioned R & D projects and consultancy. Organising National and international days of importance and organizing seminars/webinars on different environmental concepts are regular features of the school. The School has instituted Gold medal for first ranker in Geology and first ranker among girl students in Environmental Science.

All courses are career-oriented that provide good employability and placements. The course curricula are the best and support the students in the form of Geological field training, mine and industrial visits. School of Earth Sciences has a major contribution to funding generation through consultancy work.

The groundwater surveys undertaken by the school contribute to the eradication of drinking water and irrigation requirements in the drought-prone areas of the region. Extension activities in the form of village adoption, organization of the exhibition, environmental camps, seminars and the likes strengthen the student’s participation and kindle the competitive spirit in life.

Quite a number of students are recruited in state and central Govt. services at the rank of Gazetted officers.
