The Department of Geography at Savitribai Phule Pune University has a long standing tradition of carrying out field work in geomorphology and other disciplines which is ably supported by laboratory testing and analysis.
Within each major specialization there are in-house technical facilities which include: Computer laboratory, geomorphology and soil laboratory, weather monitoring station, remote sensing laboratory and GIS facilities besides a cartographic resource library and other special features. This department is one of the few university departments in India which has a number of options for specialization, faculty with research experience and expertise in several applied fields of geography.
The Department provides a stimulating research / learning environment and the requisite research tools for training and research in every major branch of the subject. Besides superior teaching, the faculty is engaged in numerous research and consultancy projects, both individually and in collaboration with colleagues from interdisciplinary fields of the University of Pune and at various other institutes in India and overseas. The Department has over the years developed a suitable base for inter-disciplinary collaboration in the five key areas, namely Geomorphology, Climatology, Population and Settlements, and Economic Geography.
