|Faculty:||Faculty of Applied Science (Engineering)
|Field of Study:||Geological/Geophysical Engineering
|Description:||Geological engineers assess the physical landscapes where dams, mines, roads, pipelines, railways, forestry, and other extractive operations are planned. Geological Engineering prepares you for an exciting career that often involves travel and on-site investigations in far-flung locales, as well as exposure to state-of-the-art engineering tools.
Geological Engineering is an interdisciplinary program housed in the Faculty of Science, but leading to the Bachelor of Applied Science of the engineering Faculty of Applied Science. Our research and teaching interests span virtually all aspects of understanding the history and dynamics of our planet, as well as management of its resources and the environment we live in. This program focuses on many important aspects of geotechnology, including construction, environmental protection, transportation, energy and water supply, mining, natural hazards management, and governmental oversight.
