Engineering Geology part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Courses
This is a geology course that focuses on the core activities of engineering geologists site characterization and geologic hazard identification and mitigation. Through lectures, labs, and case study examination students learn to couple their geologic expertise with the engineering properties of rock and unconsolidated materials in the characterization of geologic sites for civil work projects and the quantification of processes such as rock slides, soil-slope stability, settlement, and liquefaction.
