Preparing leaders. Advancing knowledge.

CENTER FOR UNDERGROUND

We develop new ideas and technologies to advance underground civil infrastructure, including space and structures for working, living and playing, and tunnels for transit, roads, loop/hyperloop, water, utilities, and energy. We develop techniques to better characterize soil, rock and groundwater conditions, next gen digital underground that weaves the built environment with geotech/geology and construction operations with spatial stats and AI, and ultra-rapid tunnel construction methods. Explore our site, attend a short course, come work with us, and reach out if for specialized testing or help in any way.

Here, we are preparing leaders and advancing knowledge.
