AGS Geology for Engineers Course

The course is fully subscribed

Please contact the AGS secretary via [email protected] if you wish to be placed on a waiting list and notified if a position becomes available.

A similar course, AGS Engineering Geology, will be held in Wollongong, in November 2023, and places more emphasis on logging, mapping and developing models for engineering projects and evaluating the engineering characteristics of the ground through field observations.

Adelaide: Saturday 29th October 2022 - Sunday 6th November 2022

The aim of this course is to give students the knowledge, skills and experience to allow them to successfully apply geological principles and skills in their day-to-day work in the geotechnical industry. The course will also provide a framework for students to keep learning about total geology principles so that they can make better engineering judgements and decisions in the future.

Proposed Courses

AGS Engineering Geology Course

November 2023

The principal objective of this course is to teach students how to apply geological skills in the field to help solve engineering problems. This will be carried out by using guided field exercises, in which the students learn by carrying out realistic project related work in the field whilst being supervised by very experienced practitioners.
