Geoengineering is subject which is essential part of the competence for many professionals working in the field of Civil and Mining Engineering. For example, structural engineers need to understand the behavior of the foundation when they are planning buildings, bridges and other demanding structures. Good knowledge of construction methods and structures built in soil and rock is also valuable for professionals in water and road engineering. Also students focusing in Mining or Mineral Resource Engineering will have great benefit of this program.
