About the courseGeoengineering focuses on the study, design, and use of natural geomaterials (soil and rock), geosynthetic (polymer) materials, and other types of man-made materials (industrial by-products with potential for use in engineering applications). Numerous subdisciplines of engineering are encompassed in Geoengineering, and include Geotechnical Engineering, Geoenvironmental Engineering, Geological Engineering, and Geophysical Engineering. The Geoengineering Program at Colorado State University predominantly is focused on education and research in the areas of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering. Geoenvironmental Engineering is the engineering of geologic (earthen) and geosynthetic (polymer) materials for problems related to the protection of human health and the environment. The primary problems addressed by Geoenvironmental Engineers pertain to the protection of uncontaminated regions of the subsurface as well as the remediation or cleanup of regions of the subsurface that have been contaminated by one or more events (e.g., industrial chemical spills, leaking waste containment facilities, leaking above-ground and underground storage tanks, infiltration of pesticides, etc.).
