Why is Geological/Earth Science engineering always overlooked?

It's interesting that almost no one is discussing this major in the forum.
Everyone is either mechanical, chemical, electrical or civil.......

I guess its because the ones you mentioned are generally the commonly offered disciplines. I remember a whole bunch of people got an alternate offer to Geomatics at Waterloo last year, don't really think anyone took it. I'm personally interested in building/infrastructure design and construction, and that's why architecture is my first choice, while civil engineering is my second. Some of the stuff (ground, water systems, material behavior, etc.) isn't so appealing to me, but as a whole I think it'd be my favourite engineering out of them all.

I think typically a more common discipline is seen as safer job-wise. You really don't even learn all that much in your undergrad, most of the training comes on the job.

Geo is really a subset of civil.
