Our current students feel that the Geotechnical Section at Imperial College London is a great place to do a PhD because:

  • You become part of a renowned and active research group
  • There are excellent laboratory and numerical facilities
  • The weekly meetings among PhDs give the opportunity discuss critical points of one’s research and seek advice from fellow students;
  • You get broad feedback when you present your work in progress tothe whole section during research seminars that take place during the first and third year of the PhD
  • There are social events all year long
  • There are a wide variety of courses offered by the college, such as academic English coursesprogramming courses and other courses offered by the graduate school.
  • The current research group also aims at maintaining a tight connection to the section’s alumni: in March 2017 an alumni event was organised and over seventy people were in attendance, allowing a formidable exchange between multiple generations of researchers.
