Geotechnical Earthquake and Offshore Engineering (MSc)

The programme provides students with the knowledge and skills to design civil engineering works to resist the destructive actions applied by earthquakes; to design offshore foundations and pipelines. Efficient aseismic design requires simultaneous consideration of both geotechnical and structural engineering. The course is unique in that it takes a holistic approach in considering the subject from both perspectives equally, emphasising soil-structure interaction and providing advanced training for both components. Students spend 50% of their time at the University of Dundee and 50% at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA).
