This program aims to meet the demand for graduates of industries such as mineral, metal fabrication, foundry, semiconductor, ceramic, and other related industries. It highlights courses in physical and engineering properties of materials, analytical techniques, and material processing technologies. In addition, the program is complemented with courses in computer programming, waste recycling, and biotechnology. Students may specialize in any of the two areas of Semiconductors & Electronic Materials and Metallurgy. Career opportunities for geological engineers include those with geotechnical, environmental, groundwater, mining, petroleum, and construction companies/ consultancy firms or with government agencies.
