All of our MSc courses last one calendar year, comprising two terms of taught examinable material followed by a research dissertation.
The courses share a core of topics covering fundamental and applied soil mechanics. Four compulsory field courses are also organised, in Kent, the Bristol area, and Southern Europe.
- Advanced constitutive modelling
- Advanced soil properties
- Analysis and constitutive models
- Applied engineering geology coursework
- Consolidation and seepage
- Earth pressures
- Embankments and earthworks
- Engineering geology of soils and rocks
- Geotechnical processes
- Ground profiles and ground investigation
- Laboratory and field techniques
- Laboratory practical classes
- Partly saturated soil behaviour
- Rock strength and failure
- Stability of slopes
- Strength and deformation
This module provides you with the skills to incorporate the concepts of sustainable development into all the stages of an engineering project’s development. It is suitable for those who wish to direct their career towards issues of development and redevelopment, especially in the provision of infrastructure, and its renovation and renewal.
You will gain the practical tools necessary to apply the principles of engineering for sustainable development in real world contexts. The course comprises three units.
