Program Description:

Unique in North America, the GeoEngineering program is a collaboration between faculty members at Queen’s University and the Royal Military College. Drawn from four engineering departments at the two universities, the GeoEngineering Centre’s members are dedicated to advancing knowledge in geotechnical, geohydrological, geochemical and geosynthetics engineering. The program links four accredited graduate programs to provide shared learning experiences with interdisciplinary content: * Civil Engineering (Queen’s) * Geological Sciences & Geological Engineering (Queen’s) * Mining Engineering (Queen’s) * Civil Engineering (Royal Military College of Canada) We bring together students from a variety of backgrounds to take advantage of unique facilities and the biggest GeoEngineering faculty in North America and engage in cross-disciplinary training and close partnerships with industry leaders. Master’s and doctoral students are eligible to apply once they have been accepted into one of the four member programs. On graduation, students who participated in this program are identified as having specialized training in GeoEngineering and can become involved with the engineering of earth and rock structures such as those associated with foundations, slopes, deep excavations, tunnels, solid waste landfills, buried infrastructure and contaminated ground.
