Geological Engineering

Geological Engineering is designed for those persons interested in the exploration, development and recovery of subsurface resources, subsurface waste disposal, assessment and protection of groundwater resources and the design and development of stable foundations for civil structures such as buildings, bridges, highways and dams. A broad background in aspects of geotechnical, mining, and petroleum engineering is provided. Some degree of specialization in each of these areas is possible in the selection of upper year course.

All undergraduate students within the College of Engineering are required to complete a first-year common core. Students that secure admission to a specific upper-year discipline must follow the program of study that was in place at the time of their admission to an upper-year academic discipline, recognizing that course and program changes may result in modification to the original program of study. It is recommended that students contact the Engineering Student Centre to confirm their program of study on a regular basis.
