Geological Engineer

Job Overview

This job is where earth meets concrete and steel. You bring an added earthy depth of knowledge to the engineering profession. Your skills and judgment help colleagues safely and sustainably carve out access roads, sculpt landscapes to cradle tailings or reservoirs, weave pipelines through soil and rock, and tame the turf to hold well sites and plants.

Geological engineers conduct geological and geotechnical studies to assess the suitability of locations for civil engineering, mining and oil and gas projects. They plan, design, develop and supervise programs of geological data acquisition and analysis and the preparation of geological engineering reports and recommendations.

Geological engineers may recommend the ground support systems, processes and equipment required for safe, economical and environmentally-sound drilling, mining or underground construction activities. They may also inspect areas for unsafe geological conditions, equipment and working conditions.
