Over the years, it has been observed that many graduate engineers are unable to present themselves for the Professional Interview (PI) conducted by the IEM because they possess insufficient design experience, which is a prerequisite. This intensive design course will therefore prepare potential candidates for the said PI.

Course Overview

This course is to provide the candidate the knowledge to understand areas on the following:
• soil mechanics (effective stress, shear strength, consolidation, earth pressure etc.);
• plan and supervision of subsurface investigation  (field and laboratory tests) and interpretation of test results;
• carry out slope stability analysis and design;
• carry out foundation design (pile capacity design and shallow foundation);
• carry out settlement analysis;
• carry out soil structure interaction;
• carry out retaining wall design (earth pressure calculation); ground treatment selection.

Course Format

The course consists of formal content presentation. The facilitators’ style involves intensive participant participation.
