Our students undertake a number of field trips and site visits as part of their degree program. These consist of visits to a number of sites of interest around Yorkshire. Trips will typically consist of geotechnical materials and feasibility study field trips, where students gather social, economic, geotechnical, topographical and environmental information which can be used for structural design projects.
Geotechnical Field Trip
Every year, a Geotechnical materials field trip is organised for Stage 1 students during they visit a number of sites of interest around Yorkshire including Coldstones Quarry, one of the highest quarries in Britain.
Feasibility Study Field Trip
During Stage 3, students conduct a feasibility study on the town of Whitby. During this residential field course they gather social, economic, geotechnical, topographical and environmental information about the town, some of which is also used for a structural design project.
