Marine Engineering

It is an interdisciplinary field, in which principles of geosciences are used to solve engineering and environmental problems. It connects geology, civil engineering and other fields (e.g. mining, geography, forestry) to provide a versatile set of skills applicable to a wide range of contemporary problems. The UBC program is an accredited engineering program, so our graduates hold full responsibilities as registered engineering professionals. The qualifications of a geological engineer are similar to those of a civil engineer with geotechnical or environmental specialization. However, our graduates have the advantage of better understanding of geological processes.

They carry out site investigations for dams, plants, roads, railways, housing projects, mines and quarries, pipelines, petroleum production, forestry operations and a variety of other things. They interact with civil engineers to design essential parts of projects. They are responsible for environmental assessments or clean-up activities where pollution has occurred. They prospect for minerals, building material resources and drinking water. They carry out hazard and risk assessments and mapping for landslides and earthquakes. No wonder that, with this wide variety of applications, our graduates are rarely out of work.

There is a continuous transition between geology and engineering science and that most of us, as applied earth scientists, operate in this transition.  There are several related professional disciplines:

1.            Engineering Geology is the application of geology to obtain information and understanding of geological structures, materials and processes, as needed for engineering analysis and design.

2.     Geological Engineering is the application of a combination of geology and engineering science to design, involving rock, soil, groundwater and mineral resources.

3.     Geotechnical Engineering is the application of the science of soil mechanics, rock mechanics, engineering geology and other related disciplines to engineering and environmental projects.

4.     Geo-environmental engineering is the application of a combination of geology and engineering science to the solution of environmental problems.

5.     Environmental geology is the application of geology to obtain information and understanding of geological structures, materials and processes, as needed for the solution of environmental problems.

    As far I knew about marine Engineering, in fact I an Electrical Engineer. If you have any specific suggestion, please mention that. Thanks.

    What you wrote about marine engineering is about geological science. But in common layman’s term marine engineering is a field in which maintenance, operation of machinery on ship’s is involved.
