The programme focuses on properties of soil and geotechnical materials, field exploration, field measurements, laboratory testing, computer simulations, risk evaluations and practical design skills needed for engineering solutions to geohazards and geotechnical challenges.
The Geotechnical Division at NTNU, together with the International Centre for Geohazards (ICG), works on assessment, prevention and mitigation of geohazards, including risks associated with landslides and mass transport in soil and rock due to rainfall, flooding, earthquakes and human intervention.
