The Geotechnical Engineering group is based within the Civil Engineering Research group in the Department of Engineering Science and conducts research into soil mechanics and structures. Areas of particular interest in the research group are:

- Offshore geotechnics (including offshore structures and foundations)
- Pipejacking and trenchless technology
- Tunnelling and underground construction
- Numerical modelling of soils and structures
- Finite element analysis
- Reinforced soil
- Constitutive modelling of soils
- PISA Project
- ALPACA Project
