Forthcoming COGAN E-Learning Topics 1

Guided by feedback from the Industry Needs Survey, the COGAN partners chose the two topics to be covered by the COGAN E-Learning modules later in the project. These topics will be: Setting up a geotechnical numerical model Structural elements in geotechnical numerical models These E-Learning modules will be ready at the end of the COGAN […]

Competence Tracker Topics Agreed

Thanks to the Industry Needs Survey results and fruitful discussions at the second COGAN Project meeting in Padova in January 2014, the list of modules for the Competency Tracker was agreed. For each of these, domain experts will prepare competence statements with learning references defining much of what an engineer needs to know in order […]

600+ Geotechnical Analysts Complete COGAN Industry Needs Survey

The COGAN project industry needs survey received a strong response indicating a high level of interest in the project and the deliverables.  More than 600 geotechnical analysts from across Europe participated in the survey, helping ensure that the future deliverables meet industry needs. COGAN aims improve competency in geotechnical analysis and will achieve this by […]

Complete the Industry Needs Survey by 31st December

The closing date for the COGAN industry has been extended to 31st December 2013. More than 400 have participated in the COGAN project industry needs survey so far, helping shape the outcomes of the project. Ensure that the deliverables meet your needs by completing the survey.


COGAN Industry Needs Survey

Industry Needs Survey Launched

COGAN aims improve competency in geotechnical analysis. The project will achieve this by preparing a framework for defining and recording numerical analysis skills in geotechnical engineering as well as E-Learning modules in key technical areas. Help ensure that the outcomes of the COGAN  meet your needs by completing the project survey.
