Department of Geology

Bachelor of Science in Geology (B. Sc. Geology) is an undergraduate program offered by Tribhuvan University (TU) under the management of Institute of Science and Technology (IoST). It is a four-year annual degree program total that includes theory, laboratory practical, field work and report writing. The duration of this degree program was changed from 3 years to 4 years from the year 2069 B.S. to provide international standard of education to students at reasonable price in Nepal.

This undergraduate bachelor degree program deals with the study of physical and chemical nature, structure and geological process of earth with comprehensive understanding of earth surface processes, earth materials, tectonics, rock forming processes and paleontology including petrology, engineering geology, structural geology, hydrogeology and climate change. Geology is the science that comprises the study of solid earth and the process by which it is shaped and changed. Geology provides primary evidence for plate tectonics, the history of life and evolution, and past climates. In modern times, geology is commercially important for mineral and hydrocarbon exploration and for evaluating water resources; is publicly important for the prediction and understanding of natural hazards, the remediation of environment problems, and for providing insights into past climate change; plays an essential role in geotechnical engineering; and is a major academic discipline.

In Central Campus of Technology, geology, as a stream, was introduced in 2070 B.S. under the management of the Department of Physics. Later on, Department of Geology, as a separate department, was established on 2075 B.S. The total intake capacity is 50 students (25 from subject combinations with Physics and Mathematics and 25 from with subject combinations with Botany and Zoology). It consists of four academic years carrying total of 2000 marks including Field work.
