Geological Engineering Advisory Board
The GEAB is an integral part of our curriculum development, assessment and preparing an engineering program that meets the needs of all those who benefit from hiring and working with a UND Geological Engineer. The GEAB provides feedback to the types of skillsets needed in industry, government, research and other possible endeavors our graduates may pursue. Because Geological Engineering is so diverse, we have created selection process and criteria to select the appropriate persons to serve on the Board.
Currently there are five individuals who are from industry and three from academia who serve on the GEAB.
