 The degree in Geological Engineering presented here comes within the scope of a collaboration initiated in 2008 with the Department of Earth Sciences of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Coimbra, Portugal. Within the scope of this Project, several activities were carried out, namely, training of around 150 Masters in Geosciences, several Doctorates concluded or in conclusion, in addition to workshops, and scientific articles. Following this collaboration, ISPT applied for an ERASMUS+ project, led by the University of Coimbra, integrating European and African HEIs, called SUGERE ( Sustainable  and Wise Uses  Of Geological Resources), which was approved in 2018 by the European Union. 3 European Universities are involved in this Project, University of Coimbra, Portugal, University of Salamanca, Spain and University of Turin, Italy. From Africa, 6 HEIs are involved, from Cbvo Verde the University of Cape Verde and the University of Santiago, from Mozambique the Eduardo Mondlane University and ISCTEM, and from Angola, the Agostinho Neto University and the ISP Tundavala. This Project includes training for this course for African Teachers at European Universities, with the first training taking place in September/October 2019, at the University of Salamanca, with the 2020 training at the University of Turin having been postponed to 2021, due to the pandemic . In addition to teacher training, there is also the acquisition of equipment and bibliographic material. The submission of a Bachelor's Degree in Geological Engineering is part of the Project, which is being proposed.


The Geological Engineering courses aim to provide the acquisition of scientific knowledge and general and in-depth skills of a disciplinary nature on the processes of creating objects, products or functional and attractive environments, taking into account the economic, political and social aspects to which are intended.

The disciplines of this course present an interconnection where the contents are related to deepen the knowledge. Thinking about interdisciplinarity as a process of reciprocal integration between various disciplines and fields of knowledge is undoubtedly a task that requires, on our part, a great effort in breaking a series of obstacles linked to an extremely positivist rationality of industrialized society. The historical context characterized by the division of intellectual work, fragmentation of knowledge and the excessive predominance of specializations, requires the resumption of the old concept of interdisciplinarity that throughout this century was suffocated by the rationality of the industrial revolution.

The Geological Engineering Course is essential for training professionals in the area of Geosciences or Earth Sciences, in an applied way. This proposal is based on three assumptions:

          _cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_  - Rationalization of logistical and human resources;

          _cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_  - Adaptation to market needs in Geosciences;

          _cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_  - Usability of this knowledge area.

This Project is also based on a partnership with the Department of Earth Sciences, of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Coimbra and with the other partner HEIs, foreseeing a mobility scheme for teachers, as well as facilitating the mobilization of students between African HEIs.




Present the Geological Engineering market as an opportunity to fill a training gap in the Angolan context, namely in the South Zone of the country, training professionals to act in the management of the activity and promote the development of the Geological Engineering activity in a sustainable way.




- Public Administration, at various levels, local, provincial and national;

- Teaching and Research in the training area of the Course;

- Prospecting companies for natural resources, namely ornamental rocks and groundwater;

- Underground water exploitation companies;

- Companies or teams with digital cartography needs;

- NGOs and other associations involved in the course.
