mission is to educate undergraduate and graduate students to become leaders in
geotechnical engineering practice and academia. We strive to provide a broad
and diverse education that produces graduates who are well schooled in the
fundamentals of geotechnical engineering. To achieve these goals, we maintain a
balance between research and teaching in our program. Accordingly, theory and
practice, experimental and analytical techniques, and traditional and cutting
edge ideas are integrated within our research and teaching.
