Geological engineering

Discipline Focus:

Geological Engineering is the application of the earth sciences to human problems that relate to Earth and earth systems. It is a broad, interdisciplinary field with many specialty areas. such as: Environmental site characterization and planning, Hydrogeology, groundwater studies and engineering. Natural and manmade hazard investigations. Exploration and development of fossil fuel and mineral deposits. Geological engineering has both field-oriented work and lab work.

Improving the world through Geological engineering:

Geological engineers learn and research ways to use the resources of the earth efficiency and to protect people from natural disasters such as volcanoes and earthquakes.

Possible Jobs:

Geological engineers can do a number of different jobs some include carrying out hazard and risk assessments and mapping for landslides and earthquakes and rock and slope stability studies.
