Why Study Geological Engineering at UND?
As the planet's population increases, so do the demands we place on our mineral, water and energy resources. Geological engineers play critical roles in helping the world keep up.
In addition to completing a major design project, you'll have one-of-a-kind opportunities to study with faculty members around the globe: In the past, students have researched land-sliding, enhanced oil recovery and other phenomena in Peru, India, England, Canada, Antarctica and many locations in the United States.
- A petroleum option includes coursework designed to prepare students for employment in the petroleum industry while they complete their B.S. in Geological Engineering.
- A combined program allows students to earn a master's degree in addition to a B.S.
