Course summary

This programme emphasises geological engineering skills and provides the best technical background for employment as an engineering geologist or geotechnical engineer.It is possible to transfer onto the BSc Applied Geology programme at any point up until the end of the Year 2 as both degree programmes have a common first and second year.The first two years of study provide a thorough grounding in the major principles of geology, together with an overview of earth system science and the fundamentals of mineralogy, stratigraphy, geological maps, palaeontology and surveying. Core geological skills are developed in sedimentology, igneous and metamorphic geology and structural geology. You will undertake a substantial amount of laboratory-based practical work and will develop geological data collection skills and analysis during field classes in the UK.In the summer vacation before your third year you will undertake a four-week project which involves the collection and analysis of geological or related data. This can be done through a company placement, group project or an individual project. The cost of this work varies according to the project chosen; students may be paid for a company placement, whereas if you choose a project you may have to pay for elements such as travel and subsistence.In the third and fourth year you will study specialist advanced modules relevant to employment in the Engineering Geology or Geotechnical sectors and undertake applied research projects which focus on an area of special interest. You will also complete overseas field classes in both years.
