The Department of Geology was started as an undergraduate department in the year 1959 in an outhouse belonging to Zoology Department before occupying the KBR Hall in 1963. In that year, B.Sc. (Hons/Major) course was also introduced in the department. The M.Sc. course was started in 1986 under Gauhati University. It received the financial assistance from the DST, Govt. of India under its FIST programme. The department also received fund from the UGC under the scheme ‘Basic Scientific Research (BSR)’. The laboratories of the department have sound infrastructure for carrying out Ph.D. research. At present, the department has ten faculty members including one Adjunct Professer as well as three office staff.
