Geotechnical Engineering Group

Geotechnical engineering is a field of civil engineering which deals with understanding what is beneath ground surface. The application of this field of engineering can be useful in different projects such as design of dams, tunnels, foundation, retaining walls, temporary excavation supports, etc. This knowledge is also used in route selection for roads and highways and also projects dealing with buried wastes, soil contamination, transporting petroleum products and examining ground water flow. Today with the help of computational methods, prediction can be more easily done and computer advances have facilitated recognition of soil behavior.

Isfahan University of Technology (IUT) benefits activity in this field since 1370(1991) and many researches related to solving problems have been done so far. Applicants with a bachelor degree in civil engineering can apply for Geotechnical engineering in IUT. This university offers the following fields of emphasis for master and PhD students:
