The Master in Geological Engineering Program was established in 1997. Our program is designed for graduate students or practitioners who work in industries/institutions related to geo-resources, geological hazards, or geo-environment. In responding to further developments and advancements of geological science, starting from 2017, our study program offers eight specializations, namely engineering geology, groundwater, coal and petroleum geology, geothermal technology, mineral geo-resources, volcanology, tectonics and geomorphology, and quaternary geology and environment. Our study program also offers Master by Course and Master by Research with the intended specialization and is accredited A by the National Accreditation Board for Higher Education (BAN-PT). Since 2003, we have been selected as the Host Institution for Geological Engineering from the ASEAN University Network (AUN/SEED-Net) and recently had Dual Degree Program for geoscience program and volcanology program with Kyushu University, Japan, and tunneling dan underground space program with Warwick University, UK.
