Goals
To teach interdiciplinary study and techniques by performing applied projects related to the subjects thought in different specialities such as engineering geology, soil mechanics, rock mechanics, hydrogeology and GIS in Applied Geology.
Content
In-situ tests of rock and soil mechanics and calculations bearing capacity, Impermeability methods, Dam curtain design, tunnel excavation and support. Calculation of bearing capacity and settlement under eccentric loading in a plant site, buffer zone applications along active faults,

Learning Outcomes
1) Rock and ground mechanics gain skills in field experiments and calculation of bearing capasity
2) Learn the impermeability methods
3) Learn the dam geology
4) Learn the Tunnel Geology
5) For buildings under eccentric loads, it gains the ability to carry power and settle accounts.
