Description for 2023/24

This module uses active and team-based learning sessions and practical classes to look at the related subjects of engineering and hydrological geology from a coherent, practical perspective. In particular, students will focus on the way in which geological factors influence the availability of water resources and the design/construction of `real-world┐ engineering structures. Practical classes will concentrate on the analysis, evaluation and characterization of geological materials and the interpretation and remediation assessment of a realistic geotechnical engineering problem.

Aims
The aim of the module is to teach students the key theoretical and technical issues of hydrological and engineering geology whilst providing a practical understanding of groundwater and rock/material behaviour through the use of problem-based exercises relating to the management and assessment of natural resource exploitation and site development.
