Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
The following Educational Objectives are set for the B.Sc in Environmental and Applied Geology:
PEO-1. provide students with basic knowledge of Math, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Computer science.
PEO 2. Provide students with core knowledge to identify common rock-forming minerals, types of rocks, fossils and their significance in geologic time scale, different natural resources, and geologic structures; and to understand   the water cycle and contaminant transport; and to use geochemical, geophysical, and geotechnical and remote sensing techniques and equipment to understand the Earth materials.
PEO 3. Prepare the students to take their full responsibility as employees at the institutions dealing with Earth resources, environment and natural hazards in addition to teaching geosciences at schools.
PEO 4. Enhance students awareness of their societal responsibilities and to motivate them in disseminating knowledge, to raise environmental awareness and promote scientific literacy.
