The Department of Engineering Geology is part of the Institute of Applied Geosciences in Karlsruhe. Our task is to advance the geological aspects that underpin developments in civil and construction engineering, mining and energy resources as well as environmental, transportation and supply infrastructure. Engineering geology connects the geological and engineering sciences.
