Worldwide travel, advanced laboratories, hands-on equipment and small class sizes: Not exactly a rocky road.
Geological engineering is a hybrid field that involves application of geology to engineering problems and application of engineering to geological problems. The field is broad and diverse, and geological engineers work with engineers and scientists of many sorts. But, overall, all geological engineers are focused on the safe use of natural resources and protecting people and property from harm caused by geological forces.
