Course details

The course presents geological processes that produce landforms and geological structures, rocks and soils, and introduces the affect of geological factors on the location, design, construction and maintenance of civil engineering projects. Students conduct geotechnical tests, analyse test data, prepare geotechnical reports, discuss the engineering characteristics and properties of soil. They apply basic models of soil behaviour to analyse, solve typical problems and produce professional reports of their analysis. Students research and present information in a professional manner and communicate, work and learn, both individually and in teams.
