Bachelor of Science in Geological Engineering

USA

What will I learn?

Geological engineering students get a solid grounding in geology and engineering and can become registered in both professions. Our office is the world. We work outside, in offices, and in labs using sophisticated software and data acquired from satellites, drones, drill rigs, and boots on the ground.

As a geological engineering undergraduate student, you will be taking courses focused on the Earth, and the care of its resources and inhabitants. Courses frequently include hands-on laboratory and fieldwork. You'll also be taking engineering-related subjects in math, chemistry, physics, and mechanics, and can expect to spend significant time on engineering design projects.

Our bachelor of science degree in geological engineering consists of 128 credit hours. As a freshman, you will be admitted into the Freshman Engineering Program but can choose a geological engineering preference. Doing so, you may qualify for freshmen scholarships within the department.

You will be required to complete 21 credit hours chosen from general education. You have the option to choose an emphasis area by completing at least two courses (six credits) in that area. A “C” or better grade is required in all math and core courses.

Minors and Emphasis Areas

Our minor and emphasis areas help you focus on your interests and career goals. Complete 15 credit hours of approved courses to earn a minor, or 6 credit hours of approved courses to establish an emphasis area.

  • Geological engineering minor
  • Engineering geology and geotechnics emphasis
  • Groundwater hydrology and environmental protection emphasis
  • Renewable and conventional energy resources emphasis
  • Quarry and mining engineering emphasis
  • Environmental and engineering geophysics emphasis
