Geotechnical Engineering

The Ph.D. Program in Geotechnical Engineering incorporates in a common structure two knowledge areas well-known internationally in the research field. Geotechnical Engineering and Groundwater Engineering (or Hydrogeology) The profile of the subjects proposed in both categories or specializations is equivalent to the ones offered in well-known Ph.D. programs all over the world. Applying to a sole Ph.D. program offers an additional advantage to both specializations as they share common subjects, specially at a conceptual level (such as: flow in porous media, transportation, thermal, mechanical, hydraulic and chemical interactions), which is the most appropriate level for a Ph.D.

The subjects and research lines of the teaching staff are reflected onto the Ph.D. Thesis that have been developed throughout the program's history. The university professors in charge of the program are well-known because of their contribution to the development of mathematical and numerical methods in several fields (flow in media with random properties, transportation of pollutants, optimization of resources, constitutive equations of materials, development of advanced calculation programs) and their involvement in European and International projects with regards to many areas of civil engineering during the last 20 years. These projects are a permanent source of new research themes that are offered to the students for the elaboration of their Ph.D. Thesis.
