Engineering Geology prides itself on very strong industrial links and this has resulted in a number of industrial sponsors donating the following prizes which may be awarded annually, provided that there are candidates of sufficient merit:

  • The Vinci Construction Prize for Excellence in Geotechnical Studies at Postgraduate Level for outstanding all-round performance.
  • The Atkins Prize for excellence in project work.
  • The Wardell Armstrong Prize for Engineering Geological Fieldwork.

The Engineering Geology MSc. has a strong and historical alumni association with Leeds Engineering Geological Society (LEGS). We meet every Friday the 13th in a pub close to the University. This is currently the Fenton on Woodhouse Lane. LEGS is financed through occasional donations and has provided books, occasional hardship funds for students on the course and some money towards fieldwork costs. The nature of the Society means that such funds are small. You can find LEGS on Facebook.

The course boasts excellent links with the Civil Engineering industry. Workshops and seminars are frequently given by colleagues from professional practice. Site visits allow students to see current practice in the field.

This degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng(Hons) or an Accredited IEng (Full) BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree.
