Learn about the 60+ degrees and programs we offer. And discover the outstanding enrichment opportunities available to you.

Overview

Work all over the world searching for mineral resources and evaluating rocks, soils, and environmental impacts for construction, resource development, and industrial projects with a degree in Geological Engineering! Study in a program that stresses field-based course work and solution of real world problems. Use your specialized knowledge to conserve water, protect the environment and mitigate the risks of natural catastrophes.

Students gain hands on experience through resources such as a state-of-the-art triaxial testing lab, an underground mine facility, and a 6-week summer field camp. Many students also master suites of geo-technical engineering software, including a complete suite of current software for modeling groundwater systems available for students in hydrogeology. The use of this software is a very attractive trait for many perspective employers.
