Geological Engineering

Geological Engineering is the branch of Engineering that deals with the resolution of problems related to the direct and indirect interaction of man with the geological environment, understanding it as the support of human activities.

Mision To form professionals that contribute to society with solutions of geological problems to improve its quality of life, promoting sustainable and equitable development, through the integral and competent research and innovation in earth sciences.

Vision To be a reference for international geologist community who respond the need of society complying the highest standards.

Program Educational Objectives

The graduates of the GE program after five years of professional practice will have:

  1. Applied their skills and knowledge of geosciences, considering the scientific and technological advances, to contribute to the sustainable development of society.
  2. Designed, planned, executed, managed or started geological engineering projects integrating technical, environmental and socio-economic variables or constraints, according to society’s demand.
  3. Applied current legal, environmental or labor regulations in the different stages of the implementation of geological projects for their sustainability.
  4. Proposed, investigated, developed or applied solutions related to Earth Sciences and the transfer of knowledge, with the purpose of contributing to the scientific, technological, social, economic, environmental and political development of the country.
