Abstract

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 design review course is meant to better prepare potential candidates for the said PI.


Course Overview

This course is to provide the candidate the knowledge to understand areas on the following:
- Understand 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 classroom presentations. Participants are encouraged to actively engage in discussions.
