Course Structure (Applied Geology)

The B.Sc. (Applied Geology) programme is primarily designed for three academic years (6 semesters) for candidates who enrol in February intake.
The students who enroll at the July intake for Applied Geology, require 3 ½ years to complete the course as some of the prerequisites are not offered in July. During each semester students normally enroll in 4 units, give 25 credits each. 600 credits are required to complete the course.
