Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will:
- have basic knowledge in (engineering) geology, in the description and classification of soils and in ground investigation
- be able to classify the variable that influence soil-mechanical parameters with regard to their interaction on the system structure/building ground
- be able to "read" geotechnical reports resp. apply their results to the design of structures
- be able to identify and implement issues specific to respective building sites
