Presenter: Kyle Rovick, Kiewit
We host 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.
We regularly collaborate and co-sponsor these seminars 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).
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.
