Soil Mechanics (2102ENG)

Soil Mechanics is an important part of geotechnical engineering that deals with the engineering properties of various soils. This course provides students with valuable opportunities to develop their understanding of the fundamentals of soil behavior, and skills that will allow them to apply their knowledge to solve real-life problems. Students will also have the opportunity to become familiar with various testing procedures and learn how to perform laboratory tests to determine the geotechnical properties of soil such as grain-size distribution, plasticity, compaction characteristics, and permeability. After completing this course, students will acquire sufficient knowledge and develop critical skills that will enable them to solve practical problems related to soil mechanics
