Civil Engineering (Geotechnical and Engineering Geology), MPhil


Course Description

Course Overview

Our geotechnical engineering and engineering geology research is revolutionary worldwide. You will work with academics who are leaders in their field so that your research has a real impact on civil engineering.

By pursuing research in the School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences you will join an extremely successful research group focussing on geotechnical engineering and geology. Our mission is to foster, promote and conduct research of international quality. This means that we attract high quality graduates and researchers and train them to international standards.

Within the School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences we have a research group focussed on geotechnics and structures, which deals with the fundamental concepts of material behaviour, construction and design technology. Our research has a central theme of Earth systems science engineering and management, focussing on the concepts of: sustainability in construction; climate change and the effects on civil engineering;

We provide supervision within the broad disciplines of geotechnical engineering and engineering geology. Our current research areas are: seismic engineering and extreme loadings; slope stability; multi-phase flow and coupled multi-field analysis; soil modelling; waste minimisation and reuse; ground improvement; site characterisation

We also encourage multidisciplinary research, such as: ground improvement and remediation; in situ testing; geotechnical design; geotechnical processes in construction and the natural environment.

Training and Skills

As a research student you will receive a tailored package of academic and support elements to ensure you maximise your research and future career. The academic information is in the programme profile and you will be supported by our Postgraduate Researcher Development Programme, doctoral training centres and Research Student Support Team.
