Opportunities for students

NCESS provides various opportunities for school as well as college students to familiarise and/or pursue research on different branches of earth sciences. In order to provide a glimpse on the world of earth science disciplines, an open day is observed for school students during April every year coinciding with the Earth Day celebrations. On this day laboratories in the institute are open for half a day for students to visit and interact with scientists.

Further, the Centre offers Internship/Summer training programs to selected candidates as part of their curriculum, while pursuing University level education. Such candidates are eligible for scholarships from NCESS as per rules. Notification in this regard will appear on website every year. In addition to the above, the laboratories of the institution can be utlised for dissertation jobs of post graduate students of engineering and science subjects on payment of a small fee. Students have to identify a supervising guide for this purpose and seek Director’s permission.

NCESS is a recognised R&D institution of various universities for carrying out doctoral programs. Research scholars can register for Ph.D under science, environmental and inter-disciplinary topics as and when announcements are made by the universities. Eminent scientists from national as well as international institutions visit NCESS regularly for scientific exchange programs. The Earth Science Forum in the institute is a platform for information exchange on activities of on-going research projects and all college students available in the campus are allowed to participate in such presentations.
