Geotechnical Engineering Concentration in Civil Engineering

Geotechnical engineering is a branch of engineering dealing with the analysis, design, and construction of foundations, slopes, retaining structures, and other systems that are made of or are supported by soil or rock. The research ranges in nature from analytical and numerical analysis of geotechnical problems to constitutive modeling, experimental modeling and design-oriented research. Historically, the Geotechnical Faculty have continuously maintained a balance between theoretical, experimental, and design-oriented research, and this tradition remains true today.
