Bircham University’s Geotechnical Engineering program concentrates on the utilization of natural materials for construction and civil engineering. Traditionally, the geotechnical engineering program centred on slope stability, structural foundations and earth dams. Nowadays, the program's scope of activities has extended to include advanced techniques for site and material characterization, natural and man-made hazard mitigation, design of pavement systems, modelling of natural materials and environmental assessment and remediation.
Subjects covered on this course include: Foundation Engineering, Surveying, Geology, Hydrology, Environmental Impact, Ground Mechanics, Ground Retaining Structures, Geotechnical Analysis, Urban Geospatial Analysis, Geotechnical Engineering, Soil Science
Structural Engineering & Soil Improvement.
The Geotechnical Engineering program is available at Specialist, Expert, Bachelor's, Master's & Ph.D. (Doctoral) Degree program levels.
