Unlock the undiscovered potential of what lies below the surface of the Earth. From resource exploration to surveying and land development, geological technologists use their knowledge of rock, groundwater and sedimentary formations to inform major decisions across a number of industries.
NAIT’s 2-year Geological Technology diploma program will provide students with a solid background in physical geology, petrology, hydrogeology, geophysics, structural geology, historical geology and sedimentary geology. Students will also develop foundational mathematics, chemistry and applied science knowledge and receive essential safety training to ensure they and their colleagues are safe in the field.
In this geo-environmental specialization, NAIT will show its students how to assess groundwater quality and quantity, and discuss what is required to safely remediate contaminated sites. Water and the way it moves through the ground will be a major focus of study in this specialization, and the student's ability to properly assess environmental risks and conditions will be put to the test. Students will perform environmental site assessments, implement remediation and reclamation strategies at contaminated sites, conduct groundwater exploration and determine groundwater quantity and quality.
