Geological Engineering Minor

Geological engineering is the professional discipline that relies on the use of geologic conditions and implications for:
(1) the design and construction of civil and mining projects,
(2) the evaluation and mitigation of natural and human-caused geologic hazards, and
(3) the exploration and development of mineral and energy resources.

Academic Minor Requirements:
This minor is designed to give undergraduate engineering majors a sufficient background in aspects of geological engineering to enhance their education in geotechnology and improve their employment prospects in the geotechnical, environmental, construction, and minerals production sectors.
