Programme overview

Geotechnical engineering, also known as Geotechnics, is the application of scientific methods and engineering principles to the acquisition, interpretation, and use of knowledge of materials of the Earth’s crustand earth materials for the solution of  engineering problems and the design of engineering works. It is the applied science of predicting the behavior of the Earth, its various materials and processes towards making the Earth more suitable for human activities and development.

Program Objectives

The objectives of the post-graduate program in Geotechnology Engineering is to prepare the Engineers to research and areas construction sites, conduct lab less, create design for structures, suparise construction and ensure safely, secuity, economy and environmental-friendly construction.

Program Outcomes

The program enable the students to use the principles of soil mechanics and rock mechanics. It also helps their to investigate surface conditions and materials, determines the relevant physical/ mechanical and chemical properties of the these materials. it also gives the knowledge of evaluating the stability of natural shapes and amn-made deposits.

Career Path

The students after completion of this course will have an in depth knowledge in Geotechnology Engineering.Geotechnical engineers are involved in stages like

  • Site supervision
  • Inspection of soil, rocks, bedrock
  • Project analysis
  • Design and construction of foundation and other necessary structures etc.

Usually, their job involves site work, supervision, design, cost estimation as well as project management.
