《Advanced Soil Mechanics》
Advanced Soil Mechanics: it is one of the earliest courses established for geotechnical engineering in China, which has a history of 30 years. In 2008, it was awarded the Excellent Course of Tsinghua University, which is an important course for the major of geotechnical engineering, as well as the course for graduate students. Meanwhile, it is an elective course for graduatestudents from relevant majors. The course introducesthe latestadvancements and problems of theories and methodologies related to geotechnical engineering in China and abroad systematically.
The graduate courses of the Department of Hydraulic Engineering cover the primary discipline of hydraulic engineering, geotechnical engineering research of the primary discipline of civil engineering, and construction project management research of the primary discipline of management science and engineering. The graduates are recruited for the primary disciplines with research directions on hydrology and water resources, hydraulics and fluvialdynamics, coastal ports and offshore engineering, hydraulic structure engineering, hydraulic and hydropower engineering, geotechnical engineering, and engineering project management. Doctoral candidates are recruitedalso according to the primary disciplineswhose research directions cover water and sediment science and river engineering, hydrology and water resources, hydraulics and water environment, flood and disaster prevention and mitigation, port fairway and offshore engineering, rock-soil mechanics and engineering, concrete materials and structure, hydraulic hub engineering, hydraulic engineering technology and management, hydraulic ination and digital hydraulic engineering, and construction project management. In recent years, around 45 doctoral candidates and 40-50 graduates are enrolled from multiple channels, such as exam-free recommendation by Tsinghua University, exam-free recommendation by other universities, and graduate students entrance examination.
