Course summary

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 Engineering 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 Engineering 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 PhD 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.

As a result of our research we have been able to revolutionise electrokinetic geosynthetics, self-boring pressuremeters, geothermal testing and construct a full-scale embankment for field experimentation.
