Geology and Engineering- Interdisciplinary Engineering and Science
Geological Engineering is interdisciplinary with faculty from the College of Engineering and the College of Letters and Science. Geological Engineering integrates two disciplines – geology and engineering. Geologist study the earth – its origins, its composition, and its evolution. Engineers apply scientific principles to practical ends, such as the design and construction of facilities for practical use by society. Geological engineers find the best ways to use the earth’s resources to solve technical problems while protecting the environment.
