Courses

Geomechanics

The course aims at providing future civil engineers with the knowledge of geomechanics for professional practice. It addresses, among others, the main stress-strain constitutive models within the context of elasticity and elasto-plasticity and the estimation methods of the lateral earth pressure.

Energy geostructures

Energy geostructures are an innovative technology that couple the structural role of foundations and the heating/cooling role of geothermal heat exchangers. The goal of the course is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the structural, geotechnical and energy behaviour.

Terra Epidermis

This transversal project aims to test around a case study chosen, the specifics of " reverse soil ." On a chose site, students will be invited to propose a single technical and architectural gesture, and synthesize their concept graphically.
