Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical Engineering is an important area to be dealt with for any kind of
construction. Soil being a natural material offers several challenges in
construction projects. Basic knowledge of Geotechnical/soil engineering helps to
understand problems associated with it and find solution to overcome them. Soil
being founding material, is very important for safety of structure. This course
imparts knowledge of the fundamental and engineering properties of soil with
their applications in civil engineering. The course enables students to understand
soil behavior through experimental work & makes them. Knowledge regarding
properties of soil and its behavior helps to understand challenges associated with
soil. As no building stands without foundation and no foundation without earthen
material, fundamental knowledge of soil becomes very essential for success of
any construction work. This course deals with both theory as well as laboratory
work in Geotechnical Engineering.
