Department School of Science and Engineering
Study type Taught


Develop your skills, knowledge and understanding in geotechnical and civil engineering as well a range of specialist fields. These include offshore geotechnical engineering, advanced soil mechanics and soil dynamics and earthquake engineering.

With a range of guest speakers and seminars planned by industry experts throughout the year, you will have the opportunity to experience how your learning can be applied in real life situations.

You will undertake a research project linked to current industry needs. Recent project examples have looked at seismic retrofit of bridges in Christchurch, improved design of anchor systems for offshore aquaculture, and novel foundations for floating wind turbines.

You will also have the chance to work with our commercial grade experimental equipment and laboratory facilities. Depending on your project, this may include our Scottish Marine and Renewables Test Centre for Concrete and Geotechnics and our 3m radius geotechnical centrifuge (one of only three in Europe capable of earthquake replication).
