The MSc in Geotechnical Engineering is part of the Division of Civil Engineering's extensive programme of postgraduate studies and research. The course builds on the Division's renowned research expertise and industrial collaborations in current aspects of geotechnical engineering, including:
- Offshore engineering (incl. Oil and Gas, Marine Renewables & Aquaculture)
- Foundation design
- Earthquake engineering
- Ground improvement
The course is supported (separately) by both the Scottish Funding Council and Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre in the form of full scholarships with industry-linked projects, recognising the importance of geotechnical engineering to key sectors of the Scottish economy.
Civil Engineering at Dundee is ranked top in Scotland for research. Students studying on our masters programmes benefit from our renowned research expertise and industry collaborations. The Geotechnical Engineering research sub-group was established in 1997 and it has grown significantly since that time. In addition to its undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and research activities, the group offers services to industry across a broad range of geotechnical engineering.
