The mission of the geoengineering program comprises three overlapping and mutually supportive components: * Prepare students to become productive engineers and contributing members of their professional community. * Prepare students for continual learning and professional development. * Prepare students for formal advanced education. The program has four core objectives: 1. To produce graduates with a strong fundamental scientific and technical knowledge base and critical thinking skills required for engineering problem formulation and problem solving. 2. To produce graduates with the ability to work as a professional team member. This includes the ability to communicate effectively through both oral and written language. 3. To produce graduates with an understanding of their obligations as professional geological engineers to protect human health, welfare, and the environment. 4. To ensure that graduates have had opportunities to complement their academic studies with scholarly (research) investigations, co-ops, and internships.
