Master of Science or PhD in Geological Engineering

The Geological Engineering graduate program is an interdisciplinary program between engineering and geology. Students in the graduate program include a broad range of engineers and geoscientists pursuing all facets of geological engineering as well as graduate students pursuing a geotechnical engineering degree within Civil & Environmental Engineering.

Our research topics range from geoenvironmental engineering, water resources, hydrogeology, hydroecology, rock mechanics, structural geology, geosynthetic engineering, and sensor technology, to foundation engineering, site characterization, slope stability, soil dynamics, non-destructive evaluation, engineering geophysics, and alternative energy systems.
