General Information

The focus of the Geological Engineering study program is "the present is the key to the past", which requires a strong foundation of natural sciences, sciences, basic engineering, engineering, and other supporting sciences (humanities/general studies).

Geology is the study of the earth. On top of the basic sciences of chemistry, physics and mathematics, geology also studies the most basal element, rock, which includes its various types and its physical qualities and chemical properties, its process of occurrence, presence, and arrangement in the outer portion of Earth's crust. Besides, geology also studies the geological processes that occur on Earth, either those from within the earth such as volcanic events, earthquakes, and the dynamics of movement of the earth, or those processes that happen on the surface, such as erosions, sedimentations, and other alteration to the rock. In the utilization of natural resources, geology also learn more specifically essential rocks and minerals, such as gold, silver, copper, and other materials for industrial mineral, and energy resources such as the presence of oil and gas, geothermal, coal, and water resources. In the field of engineering, geologists are required in relation with the construction of high-rise buildings, dams, bridges, and groundwater managements.

Bachelor of geology may pursue a career in state-owned enterprises or foreign enterprises in the area of exploration in the industries of mineral resources, oil and gas, and geothermal energy. A geology graduate may also work as a researcher in a governmental, private, or educational institution. Utilization of natural resources also provides the opportunity for a geologist to become an entrepreneur in the C-class minerals and precious stones explorations.
