Who we are

Nesol – Numerical Engineering Solutions

Born as an Academic spin-off, we are bringing our expertise and passion to the field for providing high-quality continuum education programs for engineers, geologists, and geotechnical professionals.
Beyond the training activity, Nesol’s mission is to provide support to the design and analysis of complex systems employing state of the art numerical tools and dedicated experimental procedures developed in decades of applied research in the field of geomechanics and material science.

Here a quick overview of Nesol’s services:

  • Advanced training
  • Numerical modeling
  • Experimental geomechanics
  • Software development

The creation of learning.nesol.net was the natural step that emerged from the rooted belief that teaching is just another way to learn. Digging the concepts, interacting with colleagues, sharing experiences and knowledge. All this represents a real venture that we can’t wait to share with all of you.
