Presenter: Antonio Bobet, Professor of Civil Engineering, Purdue University
The Center hosts a UC&T seminar series throughout the Fall and Spring that brings in speakers from all aspects of the UC&T industry - designers, contractors, consultants, owners, manufacturers, suppliers - to discuss current projects, case histories, technical advances, and to pose challenges to our students and staff on needs for the industry.
We regularly collaborate with our student chapters of the Underground Construction Association (UCA), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists (AEG) to co-sponsor seminars. Our 2013 seminars are listed below. Presentation notes and seminar flyers are downloadable as noted.
