Geological engineers merge earth sciences with engineering principles to determine what lies underground.


Working primarily in the mining and mineral extraction sectors, geological engineers oversee the stability and safety of mines and of drilling sites, particularly of oil and natural gas wells.

This includes:

  • stabilizing the site against landslides and other ecological disasters
  • protecting groundwater supplies from contamination
  • ensuring all work is conducted in an environmentally sustainable way
