Geological Sciences Academic Department uri icon

The Department of Geological Sciences, established in 1967, has achieved a reputation for academic excellence and outstanding student-faculty relationships. It is small enough for all students to know one another and well enough equipped to support a wide array of research and instructional activities. In addition to a variety of analytical equipment, the department maintains a drilling rig, a variety of coring systems, along with a variety of geophysical equipment, all of which contribute to our emphasis on applied, field-oriented geology. Additionally ECU has a boat fleet with numerous vessels which serve as excellent platforms for teaching and research efforts.
