Our Mission

Geological Engineering Department has focused on researching our underground (oil, water, mine) and over ground (such as dams, tunnels and roads) resources, presenting them to the service of humans, solving the problems related to these from the engineering point of view, and making its experience and knowledge ready for the benefit of society with the scientific research, by taking universal and professional ethical values as a principle and regarding the science and technology as its basic goal.

Our Vision

With increasingly strong academic staff and the latest technology laboratory; to educate geologists who have the word to say in any activity nationally and internationally regarding their professions, have the knowledge and experience at an advanced level, have the ability of problem solving with scientific and engineering approaches and possess the basic values of the country.


Geological Engineering Department consist of four main departments: These are General Geology, Mineral Deposits-Geochemistry, Mineralogy-Petrography and Applied Geology Department. In each department, national and international quality researches and other activities are managed by the expert academic staffs that possess the field dominance.

There are 2 Professors, 1 Associate Professor, 3 Assistant Professors and 4 Research Assistants in Geological Engineering Department.

Research Laboratories

Thanks to the "Central Laboratory" and "Earth Science Research Centre" that the University will have in the future with the existing laboratory facilities within the department, it will provide important contributions in solving the deficiencies and problems of underground and overland riches in Batman and surrounding areas. In addition, with developing laboratories, our department will provide laboratory analysis and research facilities for activities that will be done in public institutions and organizations, private sector and universities.

There are 4 classrooms in the department which have 2 pieces smart board equipments for 60 people and 2 ones for 30 people. Technical drawing room, computers and application laboratories (Ground Mechanics, Hydrogeology and Hydrology, Geochemistry and Petroleum Products and Chemistry-Hydrochemistry Laboratories) are among other facilities of department. The Department Library is becoming more and more enriched with newly added books and periodical / non-periodical publications to its capacity.
