As a geological engineering student, you’ll be taking courses focused on the Earth, and the care of its resources and inhabitants; courses that frequently include field work. You’ll also be taking engineering-related subjects in math, chemistry, physics and mechanics, and can expect to spend significant time on design projects. To apply.

Bachelor of Science

Emphasis areas:

Environmental Protection and Hazardous Waste Management – Focus on protecting and preserving the planet.

Courses include: geological aspects of hazardous waste management, soil science in engineering practice, and environmental aspects of mining.

Groundwater Hydrology and Contaminant Transport – Focus on groundwater remediation. Projects include developing safe drinking water.

Courses include: subsurface hydrology and transport mechanics, well test analysis, and risk assessment in environmental studies.

Engineering Geology and Geotechnics – Focus on protecting the infrastructure of bridges, buildings and utilities from damage.

Courses include: rock engineering, drilling and blasting, and regional geological engineering problems in North America.

Petroleum, Energy and Natural Resources – Focus on drilling, production and reservoir engineering.

Courses include: petroleum reservoir engineering, petroleum economic validation, and applied petroleum geology.

Aggregates and Quarry Engineering – Focus is very much interdisciplinary, including mining, environmental, mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering.

Courses include: construction materials – properties and testing, drilling and blasting, and strata control.
