Your partner for research, development, and consultancy!

The Institute of Geotechnical Engineering and Road Construction (IGS), located at faculty-level, was founded in December 2012. It is tasked with research, development, and consultancy in the areas of geotechnical engineering and road construction, especially asphalt technology.
