Geophysicists are in great demand in various sectors including Oil & Gas, mining, infrastructure, groundwater, civil engineering etc. At present, the geophysics education is available only at PG level in very few universities offered integrated 5-year course after 10+2.
A strong need was therefore felt of a course which can be pursued by graduates having completed their education in geology or physics, in order to meet the long felt need for skilled manpower in this field. The study material will be sent to students once each semester.
The assignments related to study material will be sent twice each semester, to be completed and sent back by the candidate within the stipulated time period. Field training is mandatory to complete this course.
Institute has all the required equipment & facilities to impart field training in association with geophysics industry. Foreign students have a choice to undergo this training in their own country as well.
Eligibility: Graduate with science discipline either having Geology or Physics as one of the subjects. Graduates having other specialized qualifications related to Earth Sciences can also apply and their eligibility will be subject to approval by the institute.
Duration: 12 months (online/ distance learning and 03 months of fieldwork); offered in January, April, July & October cycle of admissions.
Programme Details: The programme is essentially a judicious mix of theory and practical components to develop technology-based knowledge, skills and aptitude as per requirements of the geophysical industry.
Programme Components: Introduction to Geophysics, Introduction to Geology, Geophysical Methods- Electrical, Geophysical Methods- Seismic, Geophysical Methods- EM, Geophysical Methods- GPR, Geophysical Methods- TDEM, Geophysical Methods- Gravity, Geophysical Methods- Magnetic, Airborne Geophysics, Borehole Geophysics, Practical Field Data Acquisition, Practical Field Data Processing & Interpretation, Use of Computer Software in Geophysical Data Interpretations.
