For several years, a series of highly successful one-year post-graduate Courses in Geotechnical Engineering have been taught at Imperial College, London. These professionally oriented Courses provide specialist training in Engineering Geology, Engineering Rock Mechanics, Engineering Seismology, and Soil Mechanics. This paper describes the objectives, development and present organization of these Courses. A significant feature of this organization is that, although the Courses are sponsored by three different Departments within the College and each Course has its own special characteristics, the four programmes are closely co-ordinated to permit efficient treatment of the considerable amount of common ground between them.
