Masters degrees in Engineering Geology equip postgraduates with the skills to develop and implement engineering techniques to geological structures and processes.
Related subjects include Civil Engineering and Geological Engineering. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Geology or Civil Engineering.
Expertise in Engineering Geology (or Geological Engineering) is essential for the building and development of vital infrastructure such as tunnels, dams, mines, quarries, offshore platforms and renewable energy systems such as wind farms.
Training typically covers techniques in surface and subsurface geology, the identification of adverse ground conditions, and the design of suitable remedial measures for engineering structures.
This includes field practices such as site investigation, examining contaminated land, analysing slope stability, and undertaking geotechnical engineering design. Environmental assessment techniques are also a key component, involving methods such as GIS (geographical information systems), GPS and remote sensing to assess best practise for soil and rock mechanics, and rock engineering.
Careers include roles in the civil sector, insurance and utilities companies, environmental regulation agencies, and government.
