GEOE 281 Earth Systems Engineering F | 4

Lecture: 3
Lab: 1
Tutorial: 0
Introduction to all of the integrated fields of Geological Engineering and the essence of engineering design in an earth-systems context. Focus is on geological engineering properties and processes and their impact on design, with a particular focus on scale dependency, natural variability and risk-assessment. Introductory geotechnical engineering, applied geophysics, resource engineering and geo-environmental engineering is highlighted with emphasis on site investigation and design related to mining, tunnelling, infrastructure development, natural-hazard mitigation and environmental remediation and resource exploration and management.
