CIVL2210 – Fundamentals of Soil Mechanics 87.0

This course is the first soil mechanics course you'll do, and most people would consider this to be the easier course in 2nd year semester 2. The lecturers can be a bit daunting with the amount of information, but the studio/tutorial sessions sums up everything you need to know for the final very well. The lecturer Alex is perhaps one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, and is always open to extending deadlines if study load becomes too heavy.

Overall, a great course with the potential to do very well in.
