Excellence in GEOLOGICAL ENGINEERING
What is Geological Engineering? It is an interdisciplinary field, which combines principles of geology, geotechnical engineering and hydrogeology, together with other fields (e.g. mining, geography, geophysics) to provide a versatile set of skills needed to solve a wide range of practical problems related to societal interactions with the earth environment. UBC's Geological Engineering program is a fully accredited engineering program that is highly regarded and internationally renowned for both its undergraduate teaching and graduate research.
