Welcome at the Chair of Engineering Geology and Environmental Geotechnics!

The Institute of Geotechnics at TU Bergakademie Freiberg traditionally rests on the three pillars rock mechanics, soil mechanics and engineering geology. The Chair of Engineering Geology conducts interdisciplinary research on processes in the geological subsurface and their effects on geotechnical applications. Our curriculum includes basic and applied courses in engineering geology and environmental geotechnics.
