Department of Geology

The department of Geology was established in 1960, the year when NSS College of Engineering came into existence. The department consists of one teaching faculty only. The geological study is purely a field study. But the limitations of the engineering course is that this study has to be confined in the class room walls. The department is at present trying its level best to overcome this limitation with the help of a well equipped lab. The lab consists of more than 250 rock mega specimens, more than 500 mineral mega specimens, more than 200 rock microscopic slides, crystallographic forms , petrological microscopes etc., for familiarizing students with core concepts of Geology.
