Tunnelling, and the use of underground spaces, is an important aspect of the modern urban environment with developments of major underground infrastructure underpinning the changing needs of today's society through transportation, storage and utilities. Safe and efficient design of these excavations is essential for optimisation and economic utilisation of underground space.
National and global construction industries and associated businesses are coming under considerable pressure to design, build and manage infrastructure in a resource efficient, sustainable and environment friendly manner. To deliver this, they require qualified engineers with a multi-disciplinary skillset and specialist expertise in tunnelling, underground excavation and underground space utilisation.
Camborne School of Mines is uniquely qualified in this area, being at once the UK's most prestigious specialist mining school and part of a world ranking Russell Group University.
