About the University
Founded by the Swiss Federal Government in 1854, ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich) is consistently ranked among the top universities in the world.
The Institute for Geotechnical Engineering (IGT) strives for excellence in geotechnical modelling of the ground, including delivery of deformation and failure mechanisms related to underground structures, geotechnical natural hazards, soil – structure interaction and transportation-geotechnics problems as well as clay mineralogy. The Geotechnical Group is one of the three Chairs of IGT and is directed by Professor Ioannis Anastasopoulos. The main research interests of the Chair of Geotechnical Engineering are related to natural hazards, soil-structure interaction, geotechnical earthquake engineering, slope stability, soft soils, dams, and permafrost.
