Hydrogeology and Engineering Geology – Hydrogeology - the science of groundwater, studying their structure and properties, origin, conditions of formation, their interaction with rocks, surface waters and the atmosphere. It is a branch of applied geology and is closely related to hydrology, meteorology, geochemistry and other geosciences. Therefore, the objectives of the course include acquisition of the basic concepts of hydrogeology, the study of the laws of motion of underground water and the formation of their chemical composition, methods of field and laboratory hydrogeological studies, principles of development forecasts.
Objects of professional activity
