Goals The course aims at providing inter-disciplinary studies in urban design and to develop an understanding of urban geotechnics in related disciplines. Students should be able to formulate questions regarding environmental issues in their locality using engineering geological processes/principles.
Contents Introduction: The process of urbanization, naturally fearful situations, urban hydrology and hydrogeology, Fundamentals of urban structures, Excavations at the bottom of cities, used building supplies for cities, geological hazards and cities. Basic concepts related to the environment, Geological processes that harm the environment, people's interaction with the environment, Environmental problems encountered in engineering applications, Groundwater pollution and geological storage of waste factors, Environmentally appropriate land use.
Work Placement(s) Absent
