Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering works with soils, underground and rocks. It explores the potential of engineering and earth sciences to implement construction projects, the sustainable extraction of natural resources and environmental protection projects. Excavations of subway tunnels, natural gas drilling, coastal areas preservation and explosive dismantling are just a few activities of this broad field of study.

With the BSc in Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, ISEP trains engineers to analyse, plan and manage projects concerning geo-engineering, geosciences and geotechnology. Designed for people who desire to combine field and office work, the course has a strong technology and innovation-oriented perspective.
Ensuring the sustainable management and exploitation of mineral, energetic and water resources, developing new uses for geomaterials, improving the safety and results of excavations and land containment and conducting risk analysis of engineering projects to address climate variability are among the main challenges that geotechnical engineers will face in coming years.
With the MSc in Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, ISEP specializes geo-professionals with advanced knowledge in rocks and soils geotechnical and geological resources, geotechnology and environment. The course targets the technological innovation of mining, energy and environmental projects and also supports new solutions for construction works.
