All engineers working with soils and rocks must understand the range of techniques available for both identifying these materials and for determining their physical and mechanical properties. The online course provides an introduction to both geology and soil mechanics. Students will also be introduced to the basic concepts of soild mechanics that are widely used in the design of geotechnical engineering problems such as flow nets, soild consolidation and settlement of structures.
The emphasis throughout the course is placed on a practical understanding of these topics.
Before enrolling in this course you need to:
Allow approximately 8-9 hours study time per week for each 15 credit course. Your workload may be higher around assessment due dates or exam time.
