Geological Engineering


An International Undergraduate Program in Geological Engineering is an educational program designed to provide students with a strong foundation in geological sciences and engineering principles. Undergraduate program of Geological Engineering was founded in 1959 has a rich history of contributing to education, research, and applied in the industry. The institution has been accredited by Indonesian Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (IABEE), a signatory member of Washington Accord. Furthermore, this program offers an international class which taught in English and facilitate students for international exposure. Various schemes among partner universities and institutions in the world will provide access for students to carry out e.g., student exchange, research, internship, summer/winter course, and join degree program.

Core Curriculum:
Geological Sciences: Students begin with fundamental courses in geology, mineralogy, petrology, and stratigraphy. These courses provide a solid understanding of Earth’s geological processes, the composition of rocks and minerals, and the history of Earth.
Engineering Basics: The program includes courses in basic engineering principles, mathematics, and physics. These form the basis for applying engineering techniques to geological problems.

Laboratory Work:
Students engage in laboratory experiments and research projects related to geological engineering. This hands-on experience helps them apply theoretical knowledge to practical situations.

Electives and Concentrations:
Many programs offer elective courses and allow students to choose concentrations based on their interests, such as energy resources geology, mineral resources geology, environmental geology, or geodynamics.

Internships and Co-op Programs:
Some programs offer opportunities for internships or co-op experiences with geological engineering companies or government agencies. These experiences provide valuable industry exposure and practical skills.

Capstone Projects:
In the final year, students typically undertake a capstone project that involves solving a real-world geological engineering problem. This project allows students to demonstrate their knowledge and problem-solving skills.

Professional Development:
The program may include courses or workshops on professional ethics, project management, and communication skills, preparing students for a successful career in geological engineering.

International Perspective:
Being an international program, it may also incorporate global perspectives, including the study of geological challenges and engineering solutions from different parts of the world.

Career Opportunities:
Graduates of international undergraduate programs in geological engineering can pursue careers in various sectors, including mining companies, energy companies, government agencies, earth scientist researcher, etc. Overall, an international undergraduate program in geological engineering equips students with a strong foundation in geological sciences and engineering skills, preparing them for a diverse range of exciting career opportunities in the field of geological engineering.
