Learning Outcomes
Learners will be able to recognize the importance of understanding soil properties, be able describe various methods of soil investigation, and be able to explain how this knowledge is relevant to site development.

Learners will be able to discuss hydraulic and mechanical properties of soils and why understanding these properties impact site development and structures.

Learners will be able to calculate soil bearing capacity and describe strategies for increasing bearing capacity with drainage, compaction and soil improvement.

Learners will be able to differentiate natural and engineered slopes, explain basic concepts of slope stability, understand why slopes fail, and be able to describe slope stabilization methods.
