The Department of Geology (Currently upgraded into Centre for Pure & Applied Geology) was established in 1956 at Elsa Kazi Campus, Hyderabad and was shifted to Allama I.I. Kazi Campus, in June 1961, where it was temporarily lodged in the Chemistry Block. In 1971, it was shifted to its present premises which has since then been expanded and a new block alongwith an Auditorium added to it in 1992. The availability of the additional space has compartively eased accommodation problem and complete new laboratories have been set in the newly constructed block.
