GEOE 345 Site Investigation & Geological Engineering Design W | 4


Lecture: 3
Lab: 1
Tutorial: 0
The course involves a team approach to tackling current geological engineering problems and developing innovative design solutions. Critical site investigation and site selection decisions are proposed, undertaken and tested with consideration of “downstream” engineering issues and constraints. The course relies on student consultation with guest participants, most of whom are practicing professional engineers. Additionally, topics such as professional liability and ethics, equity, environmental legislation, and the Occupational Health and Safety Act are presented and discussed. Formalized engineering design tools including FMEA, QRA will be utilized. Course includes a major geological engineering design project involving technical concepts, key elements of project management and communication of proposed design solutions.
