Welcome to the geotechnical engineering program of the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin website.

Our goal is to produce graduates with the technical competence to become leaders in the geotechnical engineering field.

The University of Texas at Austin has one of the largest and most active university research programs in the world. In geotechnical engineering, our faculty annually conducts research with about $2 million of external funding.

The geotechnical engineering laboratories and associated facilities reflect the program's emphasis on core subject material, as well as the breadth of research interests being pursued by the faculty.
