Venue: Hotel Armada Petaling Jaya

Geosynthetics engineering is a branch of engineering discipline cross linked with other disciplines such as civil, geotechnical, highway and environmental engineering. Although geosynthetics engineering has been used in the civil construction industry for over 30 years, the knowledge among engineers of the above discipline remains superficial. This is because geosynthetics engineering is never a taught discipline or subject at undergraduate level in most universities thus, leaving engineers ill-informed and unprepared when they enter the construction industry.

This course is intended to provide engineers with basic grounding on geosynthetics and their applications. Engineers will learn the types of geosynthetics and their functions. The course will focus on two key applications, namely road constructions and reinforced soil structures using geogrids. The course will highlight the latest development in geogrid technology and research findings. Engineers will be taught on the design using current design methods and shown the value proposition of using geosynthetics in these structures. Lastly, the course will emphasize on proper specifications to ensure performance of geosynthetics for the intended structure. Case references will be presented to show the viability and workability of geosynthetics solutions.


  • To provide engineers with basic knowledge and grounding of geosynthetics engineering.
  • Design roads and reinforced soil structures using current design methods with geogrids.
  • Familiar with correct specification to ensure performance of geosynthetics and avoid pitfalls.

Who Should Attend

Consulting engineers, government agencies, civil, geotechnical and road engineers, civil contractors, developers, design engineers, university lecturers, undergraduate and postgraduate students.
