B.Tech Geo Science Engineering

Geo science is related to the planet earth, its various strata and the tectonic plates, etc. In other words, the study combines geology and geophysics. At UPES, the program equips you with intensive knowledge about geo science and the earth's activities. This, then, boils down to the discovery and exploration of oil & gas, geo data analysis and interpretation.
