Modular courses with selection from a wide range of topics, including soil mechanics, numerical methods, ground engineering techniques, soil and rock engineering, engineering geology, foundation engineering, hydrogeology, and contaminated and derelict land. Two modules in the geotechnical engineering programme will be taught over an intensive week-long period in the coming academic year and all taught modules will delivered in this way by 2005. Design and project work are emphasised. A major course component is a dissertation which can be industrially supported or research-based. Courses are supported by ESPRC Masters Training Packages and NERC - in total15 studentships worth about £9000 each are available.
