Geology & Geological Engineering
Our mission is to provide challenging programs in the geosciences adapted not only to the needs of undergraduate and graduate majors, but also non-majors seeking to gain a greater understanding of earth and planetary environments and resources. Our focus is on the geological interpretation and proper utilization of knowledge of materials, surface and internal features, dynamic processes, and development histories of Earth and other planetary bodies. Teaching and research are concentrated in the following areas: environmental studies, hydrogeology, geological engineering, sedimentary geology, field mapping, paleontology, surface processes, petrology, geochemistry, planetary geology, geophysics, and tectonics.
