The oceans hold a wealth of mineral / hydrocarbon deposits, which need to be surveyed and explored by trained marine geoscientists. CUSAT was the first University in the country to begin a full-fledged post graduate programme in Marine Geology in the year 1976 taking into account the global advancement in general and national needs in particular in the field of Marine Sciences. A 3-year M.Sc. (Tech) programme in Marine Geophysics was subsequently introduced in 1992 as a logical extension to the existing Marine Geology programme, which has now been restructured into 2-year M.Sc. programme. Both the programmes have been designed to aim at the development of manpower in the field of applied geology and geophysics with a special emphasis on off shore areas with a view to cater the needs of various research institutions and survey organizations as well as private companies engaged in mineral exploration, sea bed surveys, remote sensing and oil and groundwater prospecting. Eight members of the faculty have had opportunities for research / training in overseas institutions through the award of German Academic Exchange Fellowship, Commonwealth Academic Staff Fellowship etc.
