About

Geotechnical Engineering from Polytechnic University of Catalonia brings together two areas of knowledge that are widely recognised in international research: geotechnical engineering and groundwater hydrology (or hydrogeology).  

Overview

Geotechnical Engineering from Polytechnic University of Catalonia enriches the two specialisations, as they have numerous topics in common, especially in the conceptual area (some shared subjects are: flow in a porous medium; transport; thermal, mechanical, hydraulic and chemical interactions) that corresponds to the appropriate level for a doctoral programme.

Students at Geotechnical Engineering from Polytechnic University of Catalonia will:

  • gain the ability to conceive, design or create, put into practice and adopt a substantial process of research or creation. 
  • gain the ability to contribute to pushing back the frontiers of knowledge through original research.
