Welcome to the page of the Department of Geotechnics at Saint Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering.

The department was established in 1934 and since then it has had a specialization for students to graduate from the University. Nowadays at the chair there work 3 D.Sc.s in engineering, 12 PhDs in engineering and geology and mineralogy.

The department got its current name in 1992. A complex of disciplines joined together by the term “Geotechnics” taught at the chair includes engineering geology, ground science, mineralogy and petrography, hydrogeology, mechanics of soils, footings and foundations, and a special course for those students who work on their degree theses.

Professors of the chair have always participated in solution of contemporary issues of engineering in our country; they took part in erection of greatest buildings and whole cities. They developed whole regions of the Far East, Eastern and Western Siberia, the Far East. Leading scientists of the chair are well-known all over the world as they had a great impact on development of the Russian foundation building, mechanics of grounds and taught thousands of highly-qualified civil engineers.

Over 80 years of its existence 180 PhDs in engineering and 15professors having a D.Sc. degree in engineering defended their theses. At different times at the chair there worked 7 Honorary workers of science and technics of the Russian Soviet Federated Socialistic Republic and the Russian Federation.

Research and development of the chair got reflected in numerous monographs, course books, tutorials and articles.

Researched conducted by the chair are also known abroad. Most employees of the chair participated in scientific life and worked as professors in leading universities in countries near and far abroad: Belorussia, Kazakhstan, Finland, Sweden, Korea, the USA, Japan and other countries.

Professors of the chair carry out numerous works such as researches, projects and expertise within agreements with engineering companies of Saint Petersburg and the Russian Federation. They also read lectures and hold classes for directors of engineering companies in the Institute of advanced training and professional retraining of specialists of SPSUACE.

I would like to wish students brilliant studies at the chair of geotechnics and our colleagues in engineering new interesting projects which our professors would be glad to take part in.
