About the Program
The Geology and Geological Engineering department at UND offers Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. degrees.
UND's Geological Engineering B.S. program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The next scheduled ABET accreditation visit is in November 2021.
Our mission is to provide an exciting and inspiring intellectual community dedicated to learning about and sharing an understanding of geological processes, environments, and resources.
Our vision is to be extraordinary in providing our students the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their professional careers, in conducting research that advances theoretical and applied sciences, and in delivering outreach services that are relevant and responsive.
Program Educational Objectives
The department and its programs prepare graduates for future professional growth in a broad spectrum of careers. The program educational objectives describe the expectations for graduates within a few years following their graduation:
- Program graduates shall be able to pursue satisfying careers in geological engineering or related fields that contribute to the well-being of society.
- As professionals, program graduates shall enhance productivity through technical innovations, improve communication skills, and acquire new knowledge, including licensure if it is required to accomplish their goals.
ABET Student Outcomes
To enable continuous program improvement, the department utilizes an assessment, analysis, and feedback process. A set of assessment instruments is used to demonstrate that the department's graduates demonstrate the following student learning outcomes:
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
- An ability to function effectively on a team whose member together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions.
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
