Aim of the course
The course will provide an overview of the basic principles underpinning the practical application of engineering geology. Attendees will gain increased knowledge of the geoscientific methodologies and practices required for successful interpretation of ground conditions and achievement of a greater understanding of “how to get the geology right”. Benefits will aid the provision of appropriate engineering geology deliverables in the investigation, design and construction phases of ground engineering projects.
Who should attend?
The course is intended for engineering geologists with three to six years’ experience, in particular those preparing for Professional Engineering Geologist (PEngGeol) registration. Geotechnical Engineers may also find the course useful to enhance their knowledge and understanding of engineering geology methodologies and practical application.
Engineering Geologists Stuart Read and Ann Williams from New Zealand and Fred Baynes from Australia have developed and will present the course on behalf of NZGS.
