This project was undertaken to investigate the engineering properties of soil - a case study of Hassan Usman Katsina Polytechnic, the project was done by conducting several laboratory tests which include the natural moisture content which ranges between 4-6.55%, Waterberg limit which ranges between 19.24-22.94 compaction test (maximum dry density) which range 1.4-1.43 and optimum moisture content which ranges from 6-8.5, specific gravity which ranges between 1.45-1.81, sieve analysis test which will show in the appendix, and California Bearing Ratio which range between 13.23-21% the project was done in accordance with B.S 1377 code. The finding of the project shows that the soil has sufficient strength and stability to support engineering work.         ...
