Engineering Geology

Chair of Engineering Geolog

Engineering geology is a field of geotechnics and forms the link between the natural science disciplines of the geosciences (such as geology, mineralogy, petrography) and the engineering sciences (such as civil engineering, surveying or mechanical engineering). Engineering geologists explore and investigate natural subsurfaces and derive resulting subsurface models for technical concepts. Current research activities you’ll find here.
