I. Course Introduction (including teaching goals and requirements):

Geoenvironmental engineering is a new science branch which combines traditional geotechnical engineering and environmental engineering tightly together. However, some researchers think that it is still a newly developed branch of traditional geotechnical engineering, and it can be named by environmental geotechnics. The course introduces geoenvironmental engineering development, related contents, research methods and new techniques etc. in detail, and collects updated research achievements of scientists in the world, which reflects the development direction and research level of present geoenvironmental engineering. In addition, to meet the practical requirements in the field of geoenvironmental engineering presently, Special experiment and analysis methods, the theory and corresponding calculation methods of the migration and fate of contaminants in subsurface, and various remediation technologies for contaminated sites are introduced.

Through study of the course, students can learn the research scope and its function of geoenvironmental engineering, widen their vision, and know that engineering techniques can be adopted to protect the environment, prevent and decrease pollution, and remediate the environment.
