A full-time, one-year course comprising taught modules in engineering geology, geotechnical engineering, rock engineering, soil engineering and water engineering, with an integrated programme of lectures, laboratory work, fieldwork and computer practicals. Practical work is assessed by a series of design reports. The taught component is complemented by a major individual project, carried out in Greece, Portugal or the UK. Entry requirement is a second class honours degree in geology, civil engineering or related discipline. Shell Centenary/ Chevening scholarships for students from non-OECD countries are available.
A companion course to engineering geology. The environmental engineering module, in place of rock engineering, focuses on contamination of soils and groundwater and remediation. Entry requirements as for engineering geology.
