The Colorado School of Mines, in conjunction with TBM: Tunnel Business Magazine and Microtunneling, Inc., presents “Breakthroughs in Tunneling” — a three-day Tunnel Short Course that will cover all aspects of conventional and mechanized tunnel design and construction in hard rock, soft ground and soils. The Short Course will be held Sept. 23-25 on the School of Mines campus in Golden, Colo.
This one-of-a-kind short course provides in-depth, specialized instruction not offered anywhere else in the world. The Tunnel Short Course benefits anyone involved in the multi-billion dollar global tunneling sector. In 2008, presenters included internationally recognized experts representing all aspects of the market, including engineers, equipment manufacturers, contractors and academicians. Last year’s course was sold out, so be sure to register early.
Course directors are Levent Ozdemir, professor of mining and director of the Tunneling and Earth Mechanics Institute, and Timothy Coss, president of Microtunneling Inc. The two are also course directors for the successful and long-running Microtunneling Short Course, which is recognized as the leading educational venue for microtunneling in the world.
Attendees will receive CEUs for attending the course. This course is highly recommended for technical and management professionals from owners, engineers, contractors, consulting firms and anyone else involved in tunneling and underground construction.
