The Engineering Group

Aims and activities

"Engineering Geology is the science devoted to the investigation, study and solution of the engineering and environmental problems which may arise as the result of the interaction between geology and the works and activities of man as well as to the prediction and of the development of measures for prevention or remediation of geological hazards." (IAEG statutes, 1992)

Call for speakers

We are currently compiling our evening meeting schedule for 2021 and are looking for speakers from a diverse range of backgrounds, particularly those from currently underrepresented groups within the Earth sciences, to present at our monthly evening meetings, typically held at Burlington House, Piccadilly, London.

If you have any suggested topics, then please contact the EGGS committee meetings organiser, Richard Seddon, at, with a title and brief synopsis of the topic. Presentations can be delivered by individuals, as joint presentations, or as multiple short presentations based around a theme, so any suggestions are welcome.
