Geotechnical Systems Track


The Geotechnical Systems Track focuses on topics at or below the Earth's surface, including foundations, dams and retaining structures, earthquakes, soil mechanics and more.

As a reminder, tracks are optional and not required. Choosing a track allows you to concentrate your elective courses within one area of civil engineering, in order to further specialize within your chosen field of study. For more information about specific course recommendations, contact the Student Services Office.
