The main objectives of the GEOE 407 couse are to:
Provide students with basic information on site investigation techniques and rock material/rock mass characteristics;
Integrate student’s basic information on site investigation techniques, rock material and rock mass characteristics with previous background to solve engineering geological problems;
Educate students to plan, execute and evaluate the results of site investigation techniques applied to a number of engineering geological problems;
Educate students to deal with open-ended problems to enhance their thinking and problem solving abilities;
Improve student’s background through discussing engineering geological case studies and stressing the importance of past mistakes on the safe design of engineering structures.
