This program allows students to delve into the areas of engineering geology, such as: (a) characterization of rocks, sediments or soils according to the needs of civil engineering; (b) evaluation and exploration of geological resources such as energy, minerals or water; (c) determination and modeling of geological hazards and associated risks (e.g. risks of seismic or volcanic origin or related to mass removals); and (d) comprehensive study of geological variables that directly interact with sustainable human development.
The Engineering Geology graduate will be able to go directly to the workforce or continue postgraduate studies in subjects related to the geosciences. He will be able to lead and execute interdisciplinary projects that connect geological variables with those used in civil engineering and societal development; with the aim of making recommendations in crucial decision-making processes.
