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 specific research projects in geotechnical engineering vary widely from year to year, but the principal research areas are indicated by the interests of the individual professors as listed elsewhere.

Currently active or recently completed research projects, as well as recently completed thesis and dissertations, can be found by visiting the research spotlights page. Brief descriptions of ongoing research projects are being prepared by our graduate students and will be available soon.
