About the course

There is an international shortage of geotechnical engineers yet the ground is the greatest area of technical risk in construction.

Our Geotechnical Engineering Masters degree covers the practical application of geotechnical engineering to reduce construction risk and optimise the design of geotechnical structures to ensure that they are safe, sustainable and resilient.

Understanding this risk is the underlying philosophy of our Geotechnical Engineering Masters degree. It brings together expertise to ensure that you’ll have the understanding and skills to address a range of geotechnical problems including shallow and deep foundations, soil structure interaction, ground as a source of energy, environmental geotechnics, and slope and ground stabilisation.
