Geotechnical Engineering at Virginia Tech

Geotechnical Engineering is the branch of civil engineering concerned with the design and construction of foundations, slopes, retaining walls, tunnels, levees, and similar facilities. It plays a key role in all civil engineering projects built on or in the ground, and is vital for the assessment of natural hazards such as earthquakes, liquefaction, sinkholes, rock falls, and landslides.
