9 Achievements 1970s: Establishment of Geological Museum and 1 st X-Ray Diffractometer (XRD) 1980s: Department started using computers for solving numerical/logical problems in geology Late 1990s: 1 st fully equipped computer laboratory with LAN connection on Windows NT platform and server was established 2011: e-Governance implementation lead to saving of paper cost by over Rs. 1 lakh 2013-14: Geology Department became the 1 st department in North Campus to have interactive whiteboards for teaching and presentation. The present Director of Geological Survey of India (GSI) is an alumni of our department Presently 6 Deputy Director Generals in GSI are alumni of our Department Started a AAPG student chapter for Delhi University in year 2013 An annual geological cultural festival Conglomerate started in year 2012 Antardhvani 2013 – bagged the 3 rd prize for Awards for Good Practices

10 Facilities created: XRF Lab, RS Lab, SEM with EDEX, upgradation of Thin section preparation, Experimental Structural Geology Lab, Petrology Lab, New space added (24 rooms), AV teaching aids in all the classes, Upgraded computer lab, New XRD has been added
