Soil Mechanics/Geotechnical Engineering I

Soil Mechanics/Geotechnical Engineering I is a 12-week course featuring all the soil mechanics concepts ranging from the origin of soil to stability of soil slopes. The training from Swayam extensively covers two segments, namely soil mechanics and foundation engineering. Candidates will also learn about earth pressure theory, shear strength, Bouusinesq’s theory, and effective stress concepts.

The Soil Mechanics/Geotechnical Engineering I training curriculum includes in-depth information about the origin of soil, soil compaction, and its classifications. Learning the elementary principles of geotechnical engineering through soil mechanics will acquaint you with the core of civil engineering. The course also contains a list of books and references from world-renowned authors to supplement your learning.

Swayam offers the Soil Mechanics/Geotechnical Engineering I programme free of cost. However, students who want to get a certificate featuring the logos of IIT Kharagpur and NPTEL must sit for a 100-mark proctored test by paying a sum of Rs 1,000. Students who want to pursue the course must have a background in engineering mechanics.

Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory

Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory certification is a one-month online course in the category of civil engineering. This online certification course is available on Swayam but is the design of two institutions namely NPTEL and IIT Bombay. The end certificate also possesses the logos of the aforesaid institutions for proving its authenticity factor. With this course, participants will be able to focus on learning the different tests used for testing soils.

Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory training is for performing experiments of testing soils that are presented with a small introduction that covers all the important details, and aspects of the conducted experiments. It also showcases the purpose, and theory along with the explanation of what apparatus, specimen calculations, or procedure is required to perform a certain experiment. This course easily allows the applicants to conduct experiments and then compare the results of these. All in all, the course certificate gets accepted in multinational companies like Larsen & Turbo, Simplex Infrastructure, and more.
