Geological Engineering, B.S.

To achieve its objective, the B.S. degree is founded upon a strong background in mathematics, physical and geological sciences, and engineering fundamentals; as well as economics and the humanities and social sciences - a background that will support changing career requirements and objectives and the pursuit of life long learning. During their sophomore through senior years, all students are introduced to four fundamental areas of Geological Engineering: Mining Geology, Hydrogeology, Geomechanics, and Engineering Geology. Students are then required to select an area of emphasis (option) for completion of their degree, or to design a program of electives that better serves their personal interests and objectives in concert with their faculty advisor.
