Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences Research Center

EFSRC conducts independent research activities, and academic research activities in support of  other Faculty Departments. In the framework of national and international projects EFSRC collaborates with other research development entities within and outside PHEI “Metopolitan Tirana University.”

Thanks to its research work developed by the Center of the Faculty of Engineering, it was organized for the first time an international symposium for the CPT, an important international symposium in the field of construction engineering entitled 'Symposium on Geotechnics in Tests INSITU - The first CPT training course in Albania “.In this important symposium for the first time in our country participated well-known personalities from the fields of engineering, as Professor Silvano Marchetti of Aquila University in Italy, Dr. John Powell, Technical Director of the 'Geoalbs' Company in Britain, Dr. Tom Lunn Technical Expert of the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute and Mr. Darren Ward, Director of In Situ Site Investigation. The event was organized by the PHEI Metropolitan Tirana University and T.T. - Soil and Earthquake Consulting.

Moreover, thanks to them, for the first time in Albania is bought a machine for CPT tests that is the most modern and advanced technology in the field of measuring the soil's quality.

During the event, the experts explained the importance of CPT measurements, taking examples from real life buildings in Albania  which float on water during the flooding, due to the scarcity of land solidly below them that was not measured before building them, representing in this case an important risk.
