Geology for Engineers
The topics in this course include the dominant mineralogical, textual, and compositional characteristics of sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks; the geometry and formation of brittle and ductile tectonic structures; and the principal types of Canadian ore deposits. The laboratory exercises deal with the examination of hand specimen samples and the solution of 3D structural problems using descriptive geometry and stereographic projections. PREREQ: GEOL 1006.
