About Us


  • Geotechnical Engineering, is based on the principles of both soil and rock mechanics and engineering geology. The study of rock and soil mechanics goes hand in hand with the background knowledge of the geological processes of formation and the environmental effects on such formations. A sound understanding of the fundamental principles of geotechnical engineering is needed to predict the behaviour and performance of soil as a construction material, or as a supporting medium of engineering structures. Geotechnical engineering envisages problem recognition, concept formulation and design with judgement.
