Graduate Certificate in Applied Geological Engineering (GCAGE)
The Graduate Certificate in Applied Geological Engineering is an 8-month, 9 credit specialized program for engineers and geoscientists on advanced applications of applied geotechnics.
The program will equip geoscientists and engineers from relevant disciplines with the knowledge and skills necessary to tackle advanced challenges faced in the geological engineering discipline. This includes opportunities for learners to develop key skills necessary for advancing in geological engineering practice: collaborative and critical thinking skills concerning advanced geological engineering challenges, and communication around geological uncertainty and risk.
What makes the program unique?
This certificate will provide collaboration, communication, and design skills in combination with grounded technical knowledge in geological engineering practice, instrumentation and monitoring design, and modelling. It is a student-centered educational experience with extensive problem-based learning and hand-on, team-based project work so that acquired knowledge and skills can be directly applied to real world problems and projects.
