Graduate Study in Geological Engineering

Thank you for your interest in graduate studies in Geological Engineering. The Geological Engineering graduate program is an interdisciplinary program between engineering and geology. Graduate students pursuing a geotechnical engineering degree within Civil & Environmental Engineering are also part of the Geological Engineering graduate program. Students in the Geological Engineering graduate program include a broad range of engineers and geoscientists pursuing all facets of geological engineering. We have a dynamic graduate research program with engineering and geoscience professors, visiting professors, academic staff members, and a cadre of graduate students. Our research topics cover a broad range of topics including geoenvironmental engineering, water resources, hydrogeology, hydroecology, rock mechanics, structural geology, geosynthetic engineering, and sensor technology, to foundation engineering, site characterization, slope stability, soil dynamics, non-destructive evaluation, engineering geophysics, sustainability, and alternative energy systems. The graduate program accepts students throughout the year and offers research and teaching assistantships on a competitive basis. Students wishing to be admitted to the Graduate Program in Geological Engineering must satisfy the admission requirements of the UW-Madison Graduate School and the College of Engineering. Information on the requirements for the graduate program is provided in the GLE Graduate Student Handbook. Graduate study in Geological Engineering is more than classes and research. Madison is a wonderful place to live with a variety of opportunities for recreation, entertainment, and socializing. The graduate student community has a strong social program with many group activities. Learn more about opportunites for activities at Student Life.
