Geophysicists are in great demand in the field groundwater due to an emphasis on aquifer mapping for better management of groundwater resources. A strong need was felt of a course which can be pursued by graduates having completed their education in geophysics, geology or physics, in order to meet the long felt need for skilled manpower in the field of groundwater exploration.
This course is offered by AF Academy, and not in association with Singhania University.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 groundwater industry.
Programme Components: Introduction to Geophysics, Introduction to Geology, Introduction to Hydrogeology, Geophysical Methods, Airborne Geophysics, Borehole Geophysics, Ground Water Pollution Studies, Environmental Geophysics.
