General Information

Overview

Geotechnical Engineering Design will enable you to develop and apply your knowledge of Australian Standards and/or relevant guidance to analyse and design advanced geotechnical engineering structures involving a broad range of investigations. You will also learn to use computer software to analyse and design the geotechnical components; conduct site investigations; test and characterise geotechnical materials, design foundations, and earth retaining structures; and make assessments of geotechnical stability. You will also formulate, plan, manage, and complete projects individually and in teams in an ethical and professional manner by considering stakeholders and sustainability requirements. You will also document and communicate engineering information using appropriate language for a professional engineer. If you are enrolled in distance mode, you will be required to attend a compulsory residential school during the term.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Residential Schools

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Moodle Website

Feedback

This is a very well run unit that covers complex engineering topics delivered very clearly and lucidly.

Recommendation

This practice will be continued and new innovations will be continued to further enhance the delivery.

Feedback from Moodle Website

Feedback

The use of GeoStudio provides students with a working knowledge of a standard industry software package. The variety of engineering topics was interesting.

Recommendation

This practice will be continued into the future. New and more industry-relevant problems will be included in the next offering.

Feedback from Moodle Website

Feedback

It would be good to have assignment feedback by way of comments mark-up on the submissions.

Recommendation

This issue will be investigated and ways to provide more comprehensive feedback will be explored.
