The Earth Science programme offered by IIT Gandhinagar  will be developed in the interdisciplinary framework of Earth System Science, which will include its major components i.e. lithosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and atmosphere. 


The current focus will be on Earth surface and hydrological processes including the natural hazards.

The Earth Science programme will take masters students with good knowledge of Geology/Geophysics/Environmental Science/ Agricultural Science and/or B.Tech. students from Civil Engineering/Agricultural Engineering. The M.Tech. programme will aim to strengthen their understanding on specific component of Earth System Science and will provide holistic interdisciplinary understanding of Earth Surface Processes. Further, the courses on computing, mathematics and remote sensing have been designed to provide them strong scientific base to analyse the data related to Earth System Science. Courses on humanities and social science will help them to integrate the natural processes with social impacts.

Overall, special emphasis will be given to develop quantitative understanding of the processes and to develop the mathematical models related to Earth System Science. The students are expected to have interest in quantitative reasoning, mathematical modelling and computing.
