Students learn about the types of seismic waves produced by earthquakes and how they move the Earth. Students learn how engineers build shake tables that simulate the ground motions of the Earth caused by seismic waves in order to test the seismic performance of buildings.

Our objective in earthquake engineering research is to improve the state of knowledge, through fundamental and applied research, to help decision. makers are defined as all the individuals and agencies affecting the planning and design/construct process, such as planning or regulatory agencies, owners, investors and insurers — and the engineers who protect against seismic hazards through earthquake.
Discover how Fugro's geotechnical earthquake engineering teams assess sites for seismic hazards. Fugro has years of experience optimising designs in areas with known seismic hazards requiring seismic risk assessment and management.
