About Engineering Geology at Faculty of Environment, University of Leeds

Our Engineering Geology MSc provides you with the knowledge and skills required to embark upon a career in an industry which could see you working worldwide on a wide range of problems from sustainable infrastructure design to the assessment of environmental and geological risk.

As an engineering geologist your understanding of how groundwater and pollutants travel through the ground may impact on the safe design and construction of excavations and waste disposal sites. You may use geological and geomorphological mapping to identify geological hazards and allow for safe development. Or perhaps you could influence safe and sustainable siting and design of engineering structures through an understanding of the ground and how it responds to static and dynamic loads or a changing climate.

Engineering geologists, with a unique understanding of the ground, and a broad appreciation of geological processes over engineering time, are intimately involved in all construction and infrastructure projects.

Established over 50 years ago, our Engineering Geology MSc, has strong links with industrial partners who are actively involved in ensuring course content is up-to-date and industry relevant.

Engineering Geology is the largest employment sector of professional geoscientists, and our graduates can be found all across the world working in various sectors within the industry, finding solutions to a wide range of problems.
