BASc in Geological Engineering

Geological Engineering is an interdisciplinary program that is housed in the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (Faculty of Science), but is under the jurisdiction of the Dean of Applied Science, and administered by a Board of Study. The program is a fully accredited engineering program and leads to a BASc in Geological Engineering.

Students who wish to enter the Geological Engineering Program must first gain admission to the Faculty of Applied Science, and complete required first-year courses or equivalent. Enrollment is limited as the program is in high demand.
