Engineering Degree Program in China - Geological Engineering

1. Introduction

Geological Engineering is a branch of geology. It is a combination subject of geology and engineering science. It studies mutual restriction relationship between human engineering activities and geological environment, and researches on how to obtain the geological environmental conditions, analyse mutual restraint form between human engineering activities and geological environment, and then study, evaluate, modify and protect geological environment.

2. Practice Teaching

Internship, graduation thesis or design, etc.

3. Research Area

Geological survey techniques and methods and exploration and evaluation of mineral resources; prediction and evaluation of regional mineral base and mineral prospecting areas; exploration, development and evaluation of mining and ore deposit; construction in the field of geology engineering; study and decision making of project feasibility; new technology and new method for geological exploration; prediction, evaluation, monitoring and protection of hydrogeology, engineering geology, environmental geology, geological disaster; computer applications in the study of geological structure, geological environment, geological processes and geological disasters; quality inspection in the course of geological engineering and design, development and application of new methods, new technology; project management of geological resources and geological engineering.
