Competition on Geotechnical Solutions for Landslide - "Engineering A Stable Tomorrow"


  • Registration – 21 Apr 2023
  • Close of Registration – 29 Jun 2023
  • Submission of Report – 29 Aug 2023
  • Announcement of Shortlisted Candidates – 10 Sep 2023
  • Presentation (Venue: Wisma IEM) – 18 Nov 2023


This is a contest for undergraduate students of a team of maximum 4 students. The objective of this contest is to test the team ability to carry out analysis, design and assessment of a slope failure based on a past actual slope failure incident. The actual slope failure case study is intended to provide a real-life version of slope failure incident. In order to simplify the evaluation of the competition, participants are required to prepare a thorough and detailed Geotechnical Slope Assessment Report based on the following main contents but not limited to:

  • Introduction
  • Geological Details
  • Geotechnical Soil Model/Parameters
  • Back Analysis
  • Failure Assessment
  • Conclusion
These simplifications do not negate any opportunities or chances of the participants to display their creativity and innovation in problem solving.

Eligible participant team will be provided with the following information:

  • Soil Investigation Factual Report (Post Failure)
  • Survey drawing and cross sections of the study area
  • Selected photos of the landslide
Candidates are strongly encouraged to research for additional information deemed to be useful for the assessment. (Additional efforts will be recognized as an added value)

The report shall limit to maximum 20 Pages (excluding figures, diagrams and calculation sheets).

The report shall be submitted in the “PDF” Format.

The report's cover page shall feature logo and name of the university, name of lecturer, name of practicing engineer (optional), and names of team members.

Only shortlisted groups will proceed to the next stage of presentation.

The submitted report will be judged based on the following:

  • Relevance and in-depth knowledge of the problem statement
  • Interpretation and usage of the provided information
  • Analysis and assessment of the problem statement
  • Creativity and innovation in the problem solving
