Geoscience Engineering

Students who graduate from the Geoscience program are capable of solving a wide spectrum of problems related to engineering, geology and the environment. Most civil engineering projects involve a thorough analysis of site geology to arrive at satisfactory design solutions. In recent years, the importance of geologic factors in design has intensified, as projects require a high level of environmental protection and restoration. Solving problems of this nature is complex, and requires considerable interaction between the fields of civil engineering and geoscience. Students can find employment as a geoscience engineer or work in the allied fields of civil engineering, environmental engineering, and geology.
