About the course
The focus of this course is on in-situ stress and its measurement. You will develop detailed knowledge of how stress measurements in boreholes are conducted, how stress data is analysed, and how the results are applied in different geoscientific and geotechnical projects.
Outline for distance course: Teachers and students communicate through an online teaching platform and an e-meeting platform. Access to a computer with a stable and sufficiently fast internet connection and a webcam is required to participate in the course.
Applicants for this course need to submit a statement of purpose (1 page) at universityadmissions.se. Your statement of purpose should explain your motivation for applying for the course, your previous education, work experience and other relevant experience.
