Leading the Way

As stewards of the Earth, you will be leading the way to a better future. Your work in the Department of Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences will show you how to balance the safety of our planet and its natural resources with the needs of society. From the field to the lab, measurement and analysis will help drive advancements in areas including water-supply maintenance, natural-resource management, disaster mitigation, and infrastructure design.

"No matter how good the science is, or how well we can predict where a hazard could occur, there’s still a human component we shouldn’t ignore."
