Engineering Geology


The course introduces the basic concepts of engineering geology, the typical engineering geological problems (like landslide, debris flow, collapse, et al) and their mechanisms, the research methods and the analytical and assessment methods of those engineering geological problems, and trains students master the abilities of comprehensive analysis.


Geological Environment and Geohazards Countermeasure Engineering


The course introduces the basic concepts of geological environment and geohazards, the main geological environmental problems faced by current society, the origin, process and impact of main geohazards, the risk assessment method of geohazards, the effective geohazards countermeasures in practice and the design, as well as the monitoring of potential geohazards.
