Advanced Geotechnical Engineering
This programme will nurture and develop your understanding of the principles and theories behind ground engineering. Topics include deep foundations in urban areas, tunnelling, foundations for energy infrastructure, deep water energy resources exploration and field monitoring. During your studies you will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge and practical understanding of scientific methodology you have acquired on a research project under the guidance and advice of an experienced supervisor. This will help you develop the skills to acquire, analyse, and critically evaluate data, and then draw valid, defendable conclusions that can withstand professional scrutiny. Graduates are highly employable, and may progress to relevant specialist PhD or EngD research programmes in the field.
A minimum of 60 per cent in a UK honours degree in civil engineering (or a closely related subject) accredited to CEng, with a minimum of 60 per cent in Soil Mechanics/Geotechnics. Alternatively, a minimum of 70 per cent in a UK honours degree in civil engineering (or a closely related subject) accredited to IEng, plus approval from the relevant institution. Overseas equivalent qualifications are also accepted. Alternatively, at least five years' relevant industrial experience or a professional qualification (for example, CEng).
English language requirements: IELTS Academic: 6.5 overall, 6.0 in each component (or equivalent).
