EVENT INFORMATION
Saturday 26th September — Sunday 4th October 2015
University of Wollongong Northfields Avenue, Wollongong NSW 2522
Cost AGS Member $4,950.00 Non AGS Member $5,170.00
Aims of the course
The principal objective of this course
is to teach students how to apply
geological skills in the field to help
solve engineering problems. This
will be carried out by using guided
field exercises, in which the students
learn by carrying out realistic project
related work in the field whilst being
supervised by very experienced
practitioners.
Students who complete the course
should be able to:
• Understand the engineering
geological environment as the
product of the total geological,
geomorphological and
anthropogenic history of the area.
• Observe and understand geofeatures, record them on logs and
on maps and present them in
geological models.
• Describe geo-materials in
standardized form using
calibrated, field based, quantitative
descriptive systems.

REGISTRATION FORM PAGE 4
Who should attend?
• Understand geo-processes and
process rates and estimate the
probability of geo-processes
occurring.
• Interpret aerial photos and other
images.
• Use stereographic projection
methods to analyse and
understand geological structures.
• Understand the nature of
geological information and how it
should be managed and applied in
the project environment.
• Understand the role of the
engineering geologist in
investigation, design, construction
and throughout the life of the
project.
• Communicate more successfully
with other geotechnical
professionals, designers and
constructors involved in ground
engineering.
This course is designed for
engineering geologists and
geotechnical engineers involved in
civil and mining projects who have
some knowledge of geology.
It is envisaged that students will
have 3 or 4 years industry experience
and will be familiar with making
geological observations, and wish
to enhance and develop their
engineering geological skills. This
course is similar to the AGS Geology
for Engineers course based in
Adelaide, which is aimed at teaching
geology to geotechnical engineers
with a limited geological background.
However the Engineering Geology
Course based in Wollongong
places more emphasis on logging,
mapping and developing models for
engineering projects and evaluating
the engineering characteristics of the
ground through field observations.
Please contact Phil Flentje to discuss
whether the Engineering Geology
Course to be held in Wollongong is
suitable for you.

Accreditation and
Presenters
The course is approved by the
Australian Geomechanics Society.
The course is recognized by
Engineers Australia as equivalent to
80 hours of CPD requirement.
Subject to program rules, The
University of New South Wales, will
offer up to 6UOC to their Master of
Engineering Science in Geotechnical
Engineering and Engineering Geology
for students successfully completing
either the Australian Geomechanics
Courses ‘Geology for Engineers’ in
Adelaide or ‘Engineering Geology’ in
Wollongong.
Engineering geologists Fred Baynes,
Phil Flentje and Mark Eggers have
developed and will present the
course on behalf of the Australian
Geomechanics Society. A teacher
to student ratio of 1 to 6 will be
maintained throughout this course.
Numbers
Accommodation
The course will be limited to a
maximum of 18 students. Places
will be allocated on a first come, first
served basis or as per the waiting list
managed by Dr. Flentje.
We will stay in Wollongong for nights
1 - 3, then Batemans Bay for nights
4 and 5 and back to Wollongong
for nights 6 – 8. We require all
participants to stay in the nominated
motels. We are currently making the
arrangements and a booking form
will be posted on the website in May.
Booking the accommodation will be
your own responsibility as soon as
you register for the course, to secure
your rooms.
