Bachelor's/First professional degree
Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science
This program applies principles and techniques of the earth sciences to tasks such as extracting mineral and energy resources, preventing soil and water contamination, managing natural hazards and building infrastructure with, or within, earth materials. You will study physics, chemistry, applied mathematics and natural processes such as earthquakes, volcanoes, continental drift and mountain formation. You will also acquire field skills and training in state of the art geological analysis tools. Areas of specialization include applied geophysics, geo-environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering and mineral and energy exploration.
