Bachelor of Science in Geology

General

Program Description

This program is designed for students who intend to become professional geologists and/or those who plan to attend graduate school in geosciences. It is an interdisciplinary science that integrates geological observations and concepts with a range of fields including physics, chemistry, mathematics, and modern technologies in the study of Earth’s processes, environments, and history.

Graduates of the program may pursue a career in industries such as minerals/mining, petroleum, and construction, in the academe, or engage in environmental consultancy or government service.

Vision

The School of Civil, Environmental and Geological Engineering (SCEGE) shall be a bastion of academic and technical excellence that develops and inculcates in the Filipino youth the values of critical thinking, social awareness and environmental concern through state-of-the-art delivery and cutting-edge research while adapting to the ever-changing global trends in engineering education and technology.

Within the five years after graduation, the graduates of Geology program shall have:

i. Undertaken, singly or in teams, projects that show an ability to solve complex engineering problems

ii. Had substantial involvement in projects that take into consideration safety, health, environmental concerns and the public welfare, partly through adherence to required codes and laws.

iii. Demonstrated professional success via promotions and/or positions of increasing responsibility

iv. Demonstrated life-long learning via progress toward completion of an advanced degree, professional development/continuing education courses, or industrial training courses

v. Exhibited professional behavior and attitude in engineering practice

vi. Initiated and implemented actions toward the improvement of engineering practice

PROGRAM OUTCOMES

a. Ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering

b. Ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

c. Ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability

d. Ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams

e. Ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems

f. Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

g. Ability to communicate effectively

h. Broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in the global and societal context

i. Recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

j. Knowledge of contemporary issues

k. Ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

l. Knowledge and understanding of engineering and management principles, as a member and leader of a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments
