INFORMATION FOR PROSPECTIVE GRADUATE STUDENTS

Program Requirements

Prospective graduate students are encouraged to contact the professor or professors whose research interests most closely match their own. It is not necessary to pursue graduate studies in the same discipline as one's undergraduate degree. Furthermore, thesis projects may be co-supervised by faculty members from more than one Department. Click here for a description of current graduate projects.

Program Enrollment

How to enroll in the Collaborative GeoEngineering Program:

  1. Enroll in one of the three ‘home’ departments with a thesis supervisor connected with the GeoEngineering Centre. Satisfy the coursework, thesis and other requirements of the specific member (home) program in which you enroll.
  2. Fill out the Collaborative program enrollment form and e-mail completed form to the Administrative Secretary Laura Cybulski  and the Centre Director Ian Moore 
  3. Obtain and complete academic change form Debbie Ritchie, Graduate Assistant, Ellis Hall, room 241. Debbie will then register you through SOLUS in GENG840
  4. Participate in the “GeoEngineering Seminar” GENG840 graduate course; this regular seminar series features presentations from faculty members, graduate students, visiting practitioners and researchers, one evening each week; this common learning experience exposes students to examples of research and practice in all of the different areas of GeoEngineering; this course appears as an extra course on your transcript, or substitutes for existing seminar courses where the “home” program has a compulsory seminar requirement; participation would be two terms for the Masters, and four terms for the doctoral degrees.
  5. Take one GeoEngineering course from outside your home department; at least 20% of selected coursework must be in GeoEngineering from your home program, and at least 20% from a program outside your “home” program; this ensures you share your learning experiences with other GeoEngineering students, and promotes interdisciplinary education;
    research degree (doctoral and research masters) students undertake their thesis project in one or more of the GeoEngineering sub-fields; coursework masters students choose a coursework degree project in one of these sub-fields (the coursework masters is referred to as a Pattern II Masters at Queen’s University).
