NMSU offers quality concrete school

New Mexico State University's Engineering New Mexico program will start off the new year with its 48th Annual Quality Concrete School that includes workshops and lectures covering various topics like testing, troubleshooting and transporting concrete.

The Quality Concrete School will be held Jan. 5-7 for professional engineers and others involved in the construction industry to provide the latest technologies and information used in concrete applications. The workshops encompass a range of competency levels to accommodate those attending. Among the sessions to be offered at the Quality Concrete School are "basic properties of concrete," "sampling and testing" and "Spaceport dome construction."

"Engineering New Mexico is an outreach effort within the College of Engineering to provide professional development and continuing education for the engineering profession, business assistance and STEM programs for K-12," said Patricia Sullivan, assistant dean of NMSU's College of Engineering. "As a land-grant institution, we offer relevant engineering outreach programs that advance economic growth statewide."

NMSU civil engineering professors and the New Mexico Ready Mix Concrete and Aggregates Association will facilitate the lectures and workshops. Registration for the Concrete School also includes a luncheon and banquet on Friday, Jan. 6.

Although the university's offices will be closed from Dec. 23 through Jan. 2, those wishing to attend the workshop should send an email to pre-register to Sherry Woods before Jan. 3. Registrants should send their name, company affiliation, address, phone number and email address to sawoods@nmsu.edu.
