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.
