Geological engineers are trained to characterize and predict the behaviour of natural materials and fluids. They work to find and develop the resources that society needs for its survival and in the disposal of society’s wastes in a manner that results in the least possible disturbance to the environment. Geological engineers also work to design and develop stable building foundations, bridges, dams, highways, landfill sites and waterways.
