What determines whether the product after a Masters degree will be an engineering geologist or a geotechnical engineer?

Engineering Geology aims to apply geologic data, techniques, and principles to the study of rock and soil materials, surface and sub-surface fluids, and the interaction of introduced materials and processes with the geologic environment.

The Association of Engineering Geologists' mission was redefined in 1998 as The International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment.

Engineering geologists primarily deliver basic geological data to engineers without interpretation.

The discipline of Engineering Geology does not vary in its statement and interpretation from country to country.

The aim of Engineering Geology is solely to ensure the development, protection, and remediation of ground-water resources.

The Association of Engineering Geologists defines Engineering Geology as the discipline of applying geological data only to engineering structures (fixed works).

Engineering geologists may design foundations and slope stabilisation, spending much of their time as geotechnical engineers.

Exploration for sources of potable water is primarily carried out by engineering geologists in all countries.

Engineering geology is always taught as a postgraduate (Masters) degree course following on from a first degree or other qualification.

Engineering geology is also known as 'geotechnical engineering', 'earth science engineering', and 'environmental geology'.

The product after the Masters degree will always be an engineering geologist if the first degree is in geology.

Engineering failures may only result in financial costs.

The influence of the geology of the site on the design and construction of the engineering work does not need to be determined, understood, and clearly explained.

Engineering geologists contribute to the task of providing a level of understanding of ground conditions that ensures the engineering works are constructed to estimates of time and cost.

The role of engineering geologists in the design and construction of engineering works is not significant.

Engineering geology is not influenced by the national culture of science and engineering.

What is the discipline of Engineering Geology defined as by the Association of Engineering Geologists?
