To facilitate the interaction among the geo-scientists and professionals working in the field of earth sciences both from academia and industry, since its inception the department organizes seminars, symposia, workshops, etc. from time to time. With a purpose to dissipate knowledge and know-how and to develop proper manpower in the country the department plays an important role by organizing UGC, DST, and industry-sponsored executive development programmes/workshops in almost all branches of earth sciences. These are well attended by teachers and researchers from colleges and universities and professionals working in various industries.
