Ole Miss v. Texas Game Day Activities!

The Department of Geology and Geological Engineering invites students, family members, staff, faculty, alumni, and students to the Department’s tent for Saturday’s game day activities: “Ole Miss vs. Texas.” 

Special events this week:

First, Dr. Holt has already started the BBQ and will have brisket served by around 2pm on Saturday.

Second, from about 2-3pm Adjunct Professor Dennis Powers will be looking to meet with students of Engr 691, Sec, 46, “Sedimentology of Shale and Mudrocks” for their initial course meeting.

Next, from 3-4pm, Mr. Stuart Coleman an alumnus now working as a Petroleum Engineer with Chevron has agreed to meet with current students interested in the petroleum industry or in graduate studies. Stuart is one of our graduates (B.S.G.E. 2008) who later completed a graduate degree in some state between Louisiana and New Mexico). This is a chance to learn from one of our former students who has blazed an interesting and rewarding path.

From 2pm to about 7:30pm we welcome all to come enjoy some fantastic BBQ. Be warned, however, that more than one Texan will be at our tent from time to time. It could get interesting, but is sure to be fun!

Introduction

The Geology & Geological Engineering Department at the University of Mississippi is dedicated to graduating geological engineers who:

  1. Practice geological engineering related to geotechnical, environmental, spatial information science and technology, or earth resources.

  2. Pursue additional education, research, or other professional development advancing their knowledge and mastery of subjects related to the discipline.

  3. Conduct themselves in a responsible, professional and ethical manner.

  4. Participate as leaders in activities that support service, stewardship, and economic development of the state, region, and nation.


The goals of the Bachelor of Science in Geology program are an outgrowth of and consistent with The University of Mississippi’s Mission and Goals. It is our goal to educate students whose professional careers will serve the needs of the nation and the world in geology and related fields.

Future graduates are expected to serve the same range of industries. The objectives of the Bachelor of Science in Geology program are to prepare graduates:

  • Capable of conducting productive careers as professional geologists engaged in continuous professional growth along their chosen career path;

  • Knowledgeable of fundamental mathematics, chemistry, and physics, in preparation for advanced instruction and professional practice in geology;

  • With demonstrated knowledge of the engineering sciences, geological sciences, and geological engineering design fundamentals that are the core of the geological engineering profession;

  • Well versed in the liberal arts and capable of effective written and oral communication;

  • Familiar with modern technology and modern scientific practice, and prepared to engage in lifelong learning to remain vital in the profession.
