Laboratory of Soil Mechanics

The Laboratory of Soil Mechanics educates the next generation of engineers and scientists. This includes the lectures and exercises delivered at the EPFL, and in other Swiss and foreign universities as well as in some universities of applied sciences to undergraduate students, PhD students, and Post-doctoral researchers. But education is also about informing and transferring key and up-to-date competencies to practitioners through workshops and training. Developing tools, books and supports for students and professionals is essential to efficiently transfer knowledge to a large audience.
