Engineering Geology uses applications of the geological sciences and engineering to study geological factors like location, design, construction, operation and maintenance. Geological engineers find the best ways to use the earth’s resources to solve technical problems while protecting the environment.
It is a broad, interdisciplinary field with many specialty areas such as: Geotechnical site investigation for a variety of projects, rock and soil slope stability, Environmental site characterization and planning, Hydrogeology, groundwater studies and engineering. Natural and manmade hazard investigations. Exploration and development of fossil fuel and mineral deposits.
