Civil and environmental engineering experts are the featured speakers when Missouri S&T hosts the 2019 GeoMo symposium May 10.

The symposium, titled “Advancements in Seismic Geotechnical Engineering,” will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, May 10, in the Student Government Association Chambers in the Millennium Student Center on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus.

National experts Dr. Liam Finn, professor emeritus at the University of British Columbia, and Dr. Ahmed Elgamal, professor and associate dean for faculty affairs the University of California – San Diego, are the guest speakers.

“The symposium is an opportunity to network with fellow practicing engineers as well as geotechnical graduate students, faculty and national scholars in geotechnical engineering,” says Dr. Joel Burken, Curators’ Distinguished Professor and chair of civil, environmental and architectural engineering at Missouri S&T. “The event gives practical information designed to enhance area practicing engineers’ capabilities.”

Registration for the symposium, which includes refreshment breaks and lunch, is $225 for regular registration and $75 for students. Attendees will receive six professional development hours.

The day will be especially valuable for geotechnical, civil and environmental engineers; geophysicists; geologists and hydrologists; bridge and infrastructure engineers; owners and operators; planners and regulators; department of transportation engineers; and students.
