About

The Engineering Science - Geotechnical Engineering and Engineering Geology degree at the University of New South Wales was developed to provide a deeper understanding of geotechnical theory to solve practical problems in areas including soil mechanics, rock mechanics, slope stability, foundation design, earthworks and dam engineering.

Overview

This degree is designed for students who already have a four-year accredited engineering degree and want to broaden their job prospects through cross-training, re-training or specialisation. This Engineering Science - Geotechnical Engineering and Engineering Geology degree at the University of New South Wales will allow you to meet or maintain professional accreditation standards and provide opportunities for continuing professional development.

You’ll work on a complex, open-ended enquiry-based project to develop your systematic approach to a problem. It will require project planning and the ability to analyse, interpret and communicate results proficiently. The completion of the research provides a pathway towards postgraduate research degrees through the development and demonstration of enquiry-based skills.

Future careers

A degree from UNSW Engineering offers local and international students the very best in training. It is highly regarded by employers and opens doors to local and global career opportunities. A career in Geotechnical Engineering will include planning, directing and conducting survey work to analyse the predicted behaviour of soil and rock underneath proposed structures. Geotechnical Engineers also design above and below ground foundations for these structures.

Geotechnical Engineers also work in drilling wells, constructing production and storage facilities, transporting petroleum products and examining ground water flow. This career has countless possibilities, from marine operations, to floating ice platforms in the Arctic, to mining operations across the world.
