Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

characterise different types of geological materials and relate their properties to their behaviour

evaluate stresses and failure in geological materials

account for uncertainty in geotechnical engineering design

work as a team to formulate and present solutions to geotechnical engineering problems
