Why this course?
"If a builder builds a house for a man and does not make its construction firm, and the house which he has built collapses and causes the death of the owner of the house, that builder shall be put to death."
The Code of Hammurabi, Babylon, Circa 2000 B.C.
"2600 People die every year due to Building collapse."

Engineering is, foremost, about solving the real problems not only questions in your exams.
Soil - (for Civil Engineers) an uncemented aggregate of mineral grains and decayed organic matter (solid particles) with liquid and gas in the empty spaces between the solid particles.
Soil Mechanics - is the branch of science that deals with the study of the physical properties of soil and the behaviour of soil masses subjected to various types of forces.
Soils Engineering - is the application of the principles of soil mechanics to practical problems.
Geotechnical Engineering is the subdiscipline of civil engineering that involves natural materials found close to the surface of the earth. It includes the application
of the principles of soil mechanics and rock mechanics to the design of foundations, retaining structures, and earth structures.
