The programme has been introduced aiming at the development of manpower in the field of Marine Geophysics. The course is a unique combination of Marine Geophysics and Marine Geology and the training offered is ever evolving, adaptive, academically well tuned and practically perfected to the requirements of user agencies. The faculty comprising of learned and competent academicians are at task.

The finer aspects of applied geophysics are perfected through papers covering on the prospecting of Gravity, Magnetic, Electrical and Electromagnetic, Seismic and Well-logging. Geophysics stuides are left incomplete without geology and so included General Geology, Marine Geology, Structural Geology, Engineering Geology and Stratigraphy as part of the curriculum. The curriculum is well knitted to comprehend the areas of groundwater related problems. The essentials of Oceanography are familiarised through courses that include Physical Oceanography and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics. The students are provided with necessary acquaintance to the world of instruments through their extensive training in\ Electronics and Instrumentation. Remote Sensing and Computer Programming are included in the curriculum, keeping in mind the demands of time. The curriculum also includes papers in Physics of the Earth, Geodynamics, Digital Signal Processing and Signal Analysis and Offshore Exploration. Regular field work forms a formidable part of the curriculum which involves data acquisition, processing and interpretation of various geophysical prospecting methods.

Theoretical knowledge acquired through these two academics programs gets reinforced through the practical exposure. The students get extensive practical knowledge through an exclusive three to four months project work during the final semeseter in esteemed organizations such as National Institute of Oceanography (NIO), National Centre for Antarctic and Ocean Research (NCAOR), National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI), Indian Institute of Geomagnetism (IIG), Geological Survey of India (GSI), National Institute of Rock Mechanics (NIRM), Naval Physical Oceanographic Laboratory (NPOL), Central Ground Water Board (CGWB), Centre for Mathematical Modelling and Computer Simulation (C-MMACS), National Aerospace Laboratory (NAL), Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology (WIHG), National Center for Earth Science Studies (NCESS), Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd (ONGC) etc., which provide them with a good academic exposure to become true Marine Geologists and Marine Geophysicists.
