The university programme ‘NATM Engineering’ at TU Graz and the Montanuniversität Leoben (MU Leoben) offers an opportunity to study geotechnical engineering and tunnelling at an advanced level and to learn about the New Austrian Tunnelling Method
In September 2017 a new NATM course started with around 20 students of all nationalities. At the same time the fifth modul which started in 2015 was finished. We can proudly announce that both courses were very successful. We are looking forward working with the new group.
The next programme will begin in in September 2017. Further information can be found at the NATM Website.
