Department of Geotechnical Engineering of Faculty of Civil Engineering
FCE) was established in 2012. 

In Department of Geotechnical Engineering, there are totally 9 faculty members consist of 6 doctor degree lecturers and 3 master degree lecturers. 

The department undertakes courses for both undergraduate and graduate level in 
FCE providing knowledge of calculating, analyzing and designing in soil mechanics, foundations and soil improvement ect. 

Parallel to teaching mission,
 researches are also performed by the faculties of the department in several research fields:

1. Slope Stability: 
Landslide, Riverbank Stability and Erosion

2. Soil Improvement, Geosynthetics-Reinforced Soil , Soil and Reinforcement Interaction,

3. Soil Behavior Pile Foundation

4. Underground Deep Excavation

Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory
is managed under Department of Geotechnical Engineering for both

teaching and researching purposes.
