In addition to our undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses, Imperial College's Centre for Professional Development presents a diverse range of intensive short courses for professionals working in geotechnics.

These courses, given by leading authorities both from within and outside the College, provide the most up-to-date developments in specific areas of interest. Geotechnical courses are held annually, and are continually reviewed in order to maintain their cutting-edge content.

The courses are normally around 3-day long and are presented on campus in South Kensington, London. Participation is recognised through the award of a Certificate of Attendance. 

The full set of courses offered by the Geotechnics group are:

  • Foundations: Recent Developments in Analysis & Design 
  • Building Ground Models for Risk Assessment
  • Earth Retaining Structures
  • Earthworks and Embankments
  • New Design Methods for Driven Piles in Sands & Clays
  • Numerical Analysis in Geotechnical Engineering
  • The Importance of Soil Suction
  • Practical Seismic Design
  • Advanced Soil Characterisation
