India is one of those few fortunate countries blessed with plenty of water resources in the form of rivers, lakes, ponds and a large sea coast. The coastal region and in places where there is plenty of rainfall, there’s an abundant quantity of groundwater too. But over the years because of the burden of increasing population, rapid industrialization and overuse of water for agricultural purposes, the ground water level has shrunk considerably. In many of the regions it has fallen dangerously low and it is no more economical to extract the water from such depths. A course in ground water exploration thus looks into the various issues and solutions that can help bring up the groundwater level back to a comfortable level.
Eligibility and course duration
A graduation degree in any of the disciplines from a recognized university. The duration of the course is 1 year. The duration may differ among colleges depending upon the course syllabus.
More about the course
Being a vast country with lots of diversities geographically, topographically and climatologically, the groundwater situation varies a lot among different regions. The structure and the rock formation underneath the surface varies widely and thus varying the availability of groundwater too. The rainfall is not uniform in all regions. Then there are mountains, deserts, plains and coastal regions. All these differences make it a very complex but interesting field of study. It’s through this course that you get to understand the different reasons for the varied availability of groundwater. Through this course you get to learn how to better manage the ground water resources to their optimum capacity. You also get to understand how best to preserve such ground water resources and prevent them from getting polluted due to industrialization, domestic or other activities.
Field of study
Among other things you will be studying about hydrology, ground water hydraulics, groundwater exploration, watershed management, remote sensing, GIS modelling and a few more topics related to the field.
Jobs and opportunities
This graduate diploma program opens up opportunities for you in the field of groundwater exploration, evaluation and in watershed management programmes of the government of India. There are various government jobs and with NGOs in this field. Professionals from this field are very much in demand in drought prone regions in the country. The field of study also provides for opportunities in academic and research institutions in the country.
