Our MSc in Advanced Geotechnical Engineering is a European-Accredited Engineering Master Degree programme.
It will give you the skills you need to address real-world ground engineering problems and the technological challenges faced every day by the geotechnical engineering profession.
The Advanced Geotechnical Engineering MSc 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.
