Invited Professors from Japan and the USA

Invited Professors from Japan and the USA give lecture courses for PhD and  Master degree Students of Design of Buildings and Structures Department of the Architecture and Civil Engineering Faculty of the L.N. Gumilyov ENU

 

At the Architecture and Civil Engineering Faculty start lectures by Prof. Victor Kaliakin, the University of Delaware (the USA) and Prof. Akitoshi Mochizuki, the University of Tokushima (Japan), they are international experts in geotechnics and soil mechanics.

Professors have classes on the Geoecology and geotechnology in seismic regions, Numerical methods and geoinformation technologies in geotechnics, and Research methods for PhD Students of specialty 6D072900 - Civil Engineering, as well as for 1st year Master Students on Fundamentals of research and experimental methods.
