A division of the College of Science, the Mackay School of Earth Sciences enjoys a long and proud history at the University of Nevada, Reno. While offering programs in geology, geography, geophysics, geological engineering, hydrogeology , mining engineering (with options in underground and quarry mining) and now metallurgical engineering, Mackay has expanded its scope to include research and degree programs in other critical earth science disciplines including seismology, environmental engineering and hydrology.
