Engineering Geology
Engineering Geology is the discipline of applying geologic data, techniques, and principles to the study of naturally occurring soil and rock materials, and surface and subsurface fluids.  Engineering Geology applies these principles and techniques to determine the interaction of introduced materials and processes with the geologic environment so that geologic factors affecting the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of engineered structures are adequately recognized, interpreted, and presented for use in engineering and related practice.  The Engineering Geologist utilizes specialized geologic training and experience to provide quantitative as well as judgmental geologic information and recommendations based on it. The Engineering Geologists in this section are responsible for statewide practices, standards, training, expertise, and asset management for geologic disciplines within ODOT, while the Region Tech Center Engineering Geologists actively practice engineering geology through the design of transportation projects.
