1)      Engineering behaviour of rock mass:  rock mass classification systems RMR, Q and Geological Strength Index (GSI). Applications on the design and construction of tunnels, slopes and foundations.

2)      Landslides: terminology and classification, causal and triggering factors, remedial measures

3)      Design and construction of dams: classification of dams, design criteria, engineering geological requirements, dam and reservoir waterproofing, monitoring techniques.

4)      Design and construction of tunnels: geological conditions during construction, rockmass deformation and failure mechanism, construction methods (NATM and TBM) and supporting techniques.

5)      Laboratory testing in rocks (Rock Mechanics) according to ASTM, ISRM and Ε103-84 standards
