Engineering geology conversion course aimed at graduates of earth sciences, civil engineering or related disciplines. Course provides a sound background in engineering geology for a career in the ground investigation and geotechnical industry. Normal entry is an honours degree in a relevant earth science or civil engineering, although qualifications in related areas will be considered, as will relevant industrial experience. Primarily a conversion course covering hazard reduction and mitigation put forward as part of the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction. Includes geological and geophysical processes causing hazards, properties and behaviour of soils and rocks, site investigation, seismic and volcanic hazards, hydrogeology, climate hazards, remote sensing, GIS and landslide hazard and slope stability. A study tour to Italy is part of the fieldwork. Entry: appropriate science or engineering honours degree.
