Founded in 1956, the Department conducts researches mainly on geotechnical related problems in embankment dams, slopes, and underground caverns. The Department consists of 3 research sections, namely: Section of Static and Dynamic Soil Mechanics, Section of Rock Mechanics and Section of Geotechnical Engineering Safety Technology.

The Department has a total staff of 41, including 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 11 professorlevel senior engineers and 18 senior engineers. There are 17 persons with doctoral degree and 5 with master degree.
