Geo-electric Research Division


Introduction to Geo-Electric Research

The geoelectric research department was founded in 1356 under the name of exploration at the Geophysical Institute and gradually expanded. This section has been created to provide a framework for applied research in geoelectric exploration and industry communication. The training of undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as the organization of short-term apprenticeships for applicants inside and outside the university is part of its activities. In addition, this section includes exploration of groundwater resources, mines, studying the site of engineering projects such as dams and power plants and geological structures (landslides, etc.) in the form of applied research projects.
