Underground at Mines hosts a free seminar series throughout the academic year featuring speakers from all aspects of the underground construction and tunneling industry — designers, contractors, consultants, owners, manufacturers, suppliers — to discuss current projects, case histories, technical advance and to pose industry challenges to our students and staff.

These events are a collaborative effort from the Center for Underground Construction and Tunneling, the University Transportation Center for Underground Transportation Infrastructure and the local student chapter of the Underground Construction Association (UCA).

These events are free and open to all. Please note: dates and presenters are subject to change. Past seminars are archived below with downloadable presentation notes and flyers available as noted.
