The Geological Institute, the oldest students’ academic forum in the country has remained the pride of the department since 1905. The students of this department are encouraged to express their academic interests through activities like quiz, seminars slide shows and discussions under the umbrella of the Institute. The activities culminate to an Annual General Meeting where the departmental alumnus gets a chance to mingle with the young minds and help us to carry the flame forward.

Conventionally the office bearers of the Institutes are our present students who work under the able guidance of the Faculties of the department. The institute publishes a yearly journal Bhuvidya, the contents of which are mostly written by students with the purpose of looking and knowing beyond the syllabi.

The Geological Institute organizes various programmes including the annual S Ray Memorial Lecture, Annual General Meeting and publication of Bhuvidya, Reunion, Students’ Technology Day in collaboration with Industries, invited lectures by visitors and eminent scholars. Recently the Institute organized Presidency-Cairn India Technology Day and Reunion of the Department.
