GEOE 100s


GEOE 153 LAB,LEC,TST,TUT 0.50Course ID: 011496
Earth Engineering
This course studies earth materials and processes from an engineering point of view through case histories and problem sets. The course develops a geological knowledge for applications to any physical environment and provides an appreciation of the impact of engineering work on the environment. Topics include: mineral and rock identification, the rock cycle, structural geology and tectonics, geology of Canada, effects of water, ice and wind. Students are also introduced to the concept of geologic time, topographic and geologic maps, and the basic principles and tools used to determine geologic history. [Offered: S; Offered as: CIVE 153 (W), ENVE 153 (S), GEOE 153 (S)]
Prereq: Environmental Engineering or Geological Engineering students only
(Cross-listed with CIVE 153, EARTH 153, ENVE 153)

GEOE 400s


GEOE 400 LAB,PRJ 0.50Course ID: 005820
Geological Engineering Design Project 1
Students are expected to carry out a design project to demonstrate their capability to engage in the practice of engineering as a profession. A topic must be identified and resolved by the student in consultation with the supervising professor and course coordinator. The topic may be analytical, numerical, experimental, or field-oriented, utilizing knowledge gained from academic and employment experiences. A written proposal, literature search and an oral presentation are required. Professional engineering standards and a design approach are required for the GEOE 400-401 Design Project. [Offered: F]
Prereq: 4A Geological Engineering

GEOE 401 LAB,PRJ 0.50Course ID: 005821
Geological Engineering Design Project 2
A continuation of GEOE 400 Geological Engineering Design Project 1, and the same standards and requirements apply. A progress report, a final report in thesis format and an oral presentation are required. All other courses in the Geological Engineering Program are listed under the course descriptions in Earth Sciences or Civil Engineering. [Offered: W]
