The department offers a B.S. in Geology with emphasis in engineering geology. This area has been designed to meet the increasing demand for geoscientists who are trained in the acquisition, interpretation, and use of earth materials (rock, soil, ground water) for the solution of engineering problems. The program provides geologists with specific training that will enable them to effectively interact with and support engineers. Its curriculum involves additional coursework in math, physics, and engineering. By completing this curriculum, candidates will automatically complete the requirements for a minor in engineering.
