Master of Geotechnical Engineering

Master Program of Geotechnical Engineering is designed to fill the need for experts in educational institutions, research, administration as well as professionals in the industrial sector. This program is designed to prepare the students to be able to design the sustainable improvement for problematic soil (soft soil and peat soil) for civil engineering structures; able to make a soil investigation report, and able to resolve the soil problem in the field. The students are also to be able to develop and update geotechnical knowledge by conducting research in accordance with standard rules of procedure to produce result which proven and can be published and have an advanced knowledge regarding soil improvement method, the basic principles of engineering tunnels, dams soil and rock, advanced soil investigation, rheological soil, and soil problems (soft soil and peat soil), and understand the problems related to the movement of the ground.
