This material is designed for graduate level courses (as the name suggests) in Geotechnical Engineering. It is designed for MIT open courseware. The material contains syllabus, assignments and exams without solutions which is good but the major drawback of this material is that it does not have any other ‘actual’ course material as such. The syllabus and assignments etc are useful for instructors to design a course and it is not meant for students!
