Civil Engineering (Geotechnical and Engineering Geology)
Our geotechnical engineering and engineering geology research is revolutionary worldwide. Students will work with academics who are leaders in their field so that their research has a real impact on civil engineering. We provide MPhil and PhD supervision within the broad disciplines of geotechnical engineering and engineering geology. Our current research areas are: seismic engineering and extreme loadings; slope stability; multi-phase flow and coupled multi-field analysis; soil modelling; waste minimisation and reuse; ground improvement; site characterisation. We also encourage multidisciplinary research, such as: ground improvement and remediation; in situ testing; geotechnical design; geotechnical processes in construction and the natural environment.
A 2.1 Honours degree, or international equivalent, in civil engineering, geology or a related discipline. Industrial experience is desirable but not essential. Applicants whose 1st language is not English will need IELTS 6.5, or equivalent. International applicants may require an ATAS (Academic Technology Approval Scheme) clearance certificate prior to obtaining their visa and to study on this programme, applicants will be informed of this in the offer letter.
