We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Geotechnical Engineering offer advanced study of the formation, arrangement and structure of rocks in the earth’s crust. It includes the design of structures such as dams and building foundations.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research-based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Geography, Planning or Civil Engineering.
Courses in this field are often interdisciplinary in approach, combining theories and methodologies from disciplines such as Civil Engineering, Architecture, Urban Planning and Geology.
You will focus predominantly on groundAn analysis of ground engineering is a key component, investigating deep foundations in urban areas. This includessuch as tunnelling for transport and energy infrastructures, as well as water and energy resources and field monitoring.
You maywill also consider techniques to improve day-to-day practices in the industry, such as organisational development, financial planning, logistics, health and safety and environmental sustainability.
Many courses offer professional accreditation; you will need to ensure that the course you wish to undertake provides suitable qualification for the country you wish to practise in.
As well as frontline engineering and design, careers may include financial management, procurement, or policy and regulation.
