About

Ready to apply your geological knowledge to engineering and construction projects both onshore and offshore, and take your studies to postgraduate level? Our MSc Engineering Geology degree course is for you.

Overview

You'll learn the advanced skills needed to understand the impact of geological conditions on engineering structures such as tunnels, dams, mines, quarries, offshore platforms and wind farms, plan and conduct detailed investigations into surface and subsurface geology to identify adverse ground conditions, and design suitable remedial measures for these types of structures.

Geological expertise is critical in all types of civil engineering projects – and when you graduate, you'll be able to meet the huge national and international demand for specialist engineering geologists. The course will lead to a career in the environmental, engineering geological and geotechnical sectors.
