All of our msc courses last one calendar year, comprising two terms of taught examinable material followed by a research dissertation the courses share a core of topics covering fundamental and applied soil mechanics three compulsory field courses are also organised, in kent, the bristol area, and southern europe. If you want to pursue phd after mtech, choose such a topic which you contributes there also take a you can develop new empirical relationships between various soil parameters based on past research-work there is lot of i think any topic related to unsaturated soil mechanics is good to learn and explore things.
