Our Geotechnical Engineering and Management Masters/MSc is designed for recent graduates or experienced professionals seeking to extend their professional scope or specialise in geotechnical engineering. This course builds on a strong technical core and yet allows new developments in management practice to be covered.
Modern structures, such as buildings, embankments and dams, must satisfy exacting stability and deformation criteria, and they may have to be sited on weak or compressible ground. It is the responsibility of the geotechnical engineer to plan and direct the necessary ground investigations and laboratory testing, interpret the results, and propose methods of design and construction to overcome difficulties caused by inadequate ground.
The long-term performance of the structure
The basic requirement is a 2.1 Honours degree in an appropriate discipline (for example, Engineering, Sciences, Geology, Geography or Mathematics) and evidence of adequate knowledge of English. However, practical experience may also be an important consideration.
Since graduating in 2004, Petros has worked at Scott Wilson / URS in central Birmingham and now works at AECOM, where he utilises his Geotechnical Engineering degree on a daily basis.
Petros is a postgraduate mentor, you can contact him online with questions or read further about his experience at the University of Birmingham on his mentor page: http://www.pg.bham.ac.uk/mentor/petros-isidorou/
