Understand, model and analyse the ground in relation to natural and engineering processes
During the geotechnical engineer apprenticeship you’ll specify and manage ground investigations (both desk studies and intrusive investigation on site) creating detailed ground models and analysing the response of the ground to loading. This could include man-made structures, engineering activities such as railway cuttings and natural processes such as erosion. You’ll manage teams and work with a range of stakeholders. You’ll be responsible for managing ground engineering projects in relation to sustainability, risk, cost, programme, resources, health, safety and environment. You may work within an office, on site or split your time between both of them as you undertake your duties in a professional and ethical manner.
