Overview

Ready to apply your geological knowledge to engineering and construction projects both onshore and offshore, and take your studies to postgraduate level? Our MSc Engineering Geology degree course is for you.

You’ll learn the advanced skills needed to understand the impact of geological conditions on engineering structures such as tunnels, dams, mines, quarries, offshore platforms and wind farms, plan and conduct detailed investigations into surface and subsurface geology to identify adverse ground conditions, and design suitable remedial measures for these types of structures.

Geological expertise is critical in all types of civil engineering projects – and when you graduate, you’ll be able to meet the huge national and international demand for specialist engineering geologists. The course will lead to a career in the environmental, engineering geological and geotechnical sectors.

Career opportunities

Our previous graduates have also pursued careers in:

- Engineering geology consultants
- Geotechnical consultants and contractors
- Environmental organisations
- Marine and offshore consultants
- Civil service and local government
- Mining and quarry industries

This course also has strong research skills training, advanced analytical components and an extensive research project, ideal if you wish to pursue further research at PhD level. We’ll give you as much support as possible in finding employment through use of our Alumni network, close industrial contacts, careers events, recruitment fairs and individual advice.
