Master Of Science (Engineering Geology)

by | Apr 16, 2019


The development of a nation involves the construction of infrastructure such as dams, highways, industrial complexes, ports and airports.  Such construction involves the interaction between earth materials and masses with the constructed structures.  Characterization of earth materials and masses plays an important role in influencing the usage, safety and economic effectiveness of these constructions.  In Malaysia’s efforts to attain developed nation status by 2020, such construction activities are expected to increase considerably. At the same time, sites and areas that are less suitable also need to be developed.  One important input for conducting safe construction is engineering geological input.

The Master of Science (Engineering Geology) programme aims to further train engineering geologists to recognize and overcome issues that can arise during construction and propose solutions that are safe and economical.  This programme will enhance the knowledge of engineering geologists in conducting such investigations and studies at and below the earth’s surface.
