From some of the farthest corners of the Earth to the most tech-savvy environments, Geological Engineering offers adventure and the ability to make a difference.

Harness the physical mechanics of the earth’s surface to solve complex problems. Ensure the safety of dams and pipelines, assess risks for landslides and earthquakes, remove hazardous waste from groundwater, and more.

Waterloo’s program is one of only two in Ontario. You’ll take Civil Engineering classes where you’ll learn design and problem-solving skills. You’ll also take Earth Sciences classes to acquire a solid background in geosciences. Meanwhile, through co-op, you'll gain two years of related work experience.

Don’t want to be stuck at a desk all day? You’ll have the opportunity to examine geological processes first-hand through field courses.

When you graduate, your degree can take you around the world — working in natural resource and mineral exploration, hazard waste removal, groundwater management, infrastructure planning, and more.
