Minor Program in Geotechnics

This program is aimed at students in other fields of engineering and science wishing an introduction to the behavior of engineering soils and geotechnical applications, especially those who are likely to collaborate with geotechnical engineers in their future professional life. The program requires basic knowledge of engineering mechanics and hydraulics. The emphasis will be on the principles of soil mechanics and ground investigation which are of value in gaining an understanding of problems such as slope stability, ground water movement, ground improvement and environmental geotechnology.
