Graduate Institute of Applied Geology

About the Institute

    The institute has actively engaged in teaching and research in applied geological sciences. Founded in 1991, this institute now has seven full-time and six adjunct faculty members, offering both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees with emphasis on the impact assessment of geohazards, geoenvironments, and georesources.

    Our faculties have a broad spectrum of expertise and research interest in the areas of hydrogeology, groundwater hydrology, groundwater contaminant transport, active fault and earthquake hazard, landslide hazard, engineering geology, geotechnical engineering, environmental geochemistry, mineral and energy resources, fractured rock hydrogeology, hydrogeological parameter estimation, subsurface environmental modeling, and high performance numerical simulation. These provide students with excellent opportunities in acquiring hands-on experiences in conducting laboratory as well as field works.

    All students are highly encouraged to do publishable research in cooperation with their advisors.
