Welcome to the Department of Geology
The Department of Geology was established in 2014. The establishment of Geology department in Karak area was vital because of high potential of Hydrocarbon (Oil and Gas), economic mineral deposits (Uranium, Gold, Gypsum & Halite etc.) ground water issues and environmental issues posed by exploration and mining activities in the region.
Currently the Department of Geology is offering BS-Program (4 year). With the passage of time the department is planning to start M.Phil. and PhD level program as well.
Being newly established, the department of geology is bridging a link between the academia and industry i.e. Geological Survey of Pakistan (GSP), Department of Geology & National Center of Excellence in Geology(NCEG), University of Peshawar, energy related institutions, Oil and Gas industries (National and Multinational), Remote sensing and GIS institutions and various full-fledged Universities.
Presently the department is in the process of establishing state of the art Geological, Remote Sensing and GIS, Geochemistry and Geophysical laboratories.
Aspire for leading and trend setting Department of Geology in the province and find due place among country wide.
To make the department vision a reality, the department of Geology is committed to provide stare of the art teaching and research facilities to produce professionally sound graduates at the highest national and international levels of excellence for academics institutions, national and international oil companies, mineral exploration/mining, construction and related organizations.it is envisioned that the department will be a future hub of geoscientists. This will enhance the capabilities of the local mineral sector enterprisers and will contribute to the national economy .one of the mission of department is to promote environmental friendly mining and mineral extraction methodologies in the area. This is possible through dedicated awareness campaigns, seminars, symposiums and workshops targeting the mineral industry and related government officials.
- To develop the students critical thinking, enthusiasm, initiative and necessary skills to become lifelong students of Earth sciences.
- To prepare students for professional positions in industry, government and for careers in academic research and teaching.
- To promote in-depth analysis of the earth crust and explore its economic deposits for the welfare of the county.
- To produce experts in all fields of Geology as well as in other relevant fields. The department will not be restricted to tone specialization i.e. Geology but also undertake other relevant discipline like geophysics, Geo Thermal Energy, Environmental Geosciences, Engineering Geology and Remote Sensing and GIS.
