Geological Engineering

This course will equip students with the fundamentals of geology

Geological Engineering

This course will introduce students to the basis of geology; the Earth's structure  composition, physical properties, constituent rocks and minerals, ,internal and external processes, and surficial features.

Geological Engineering

Critical thinking is defined as "the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action". In simpler terms, critical thinking involves the systematic process of evaluating and interpreting information to make well-reasoned judgments and decisions.

Geological Engineering

The course is covered through lectures, class discussions and individual as well as group-based learning tasks and presentations.  The tutorials which will be used to reinforce these, will count as part of each lecture.  This is to enable each student to apply and demonstrate the skill(s) he or she has acquired or developed.  The student is expected to read the lecture notes and any supplementary material(s) before attending lectures so that he or she can learn better by actively participating and meaningfully contributing to class discussions.  As a student, you will benefit immensely from the course and appreciate it.

Geological Engineering

This course is designed to meet the French language needs of our future engineering professionals who have the prospects of working with international organisations, both locally and internationally. The course is, therefore, to help these future professionals to be able to develop basic communicative competencies both orally and in writing, in scientific, technological and general French, to be able to interact with their French speaking colleagues in real communication situations. The course is also designed to create and sustain the interest of engineering students in the French language for further development after their programmes of study, for academic and specific purposes.

Basic communicative concepts of the French language and culture introduced to students in the first semester, will be enhanced and built upon in this second semester.
