NMSU’s annual concrete school set for Jan. 8-9

The College of Engineering at New Mexico State University, in partnership with the New Mexico Ready Mix Concrete and Aggregates Association, will host a virtual concrete training for the construction industry Jan. 8-9. The 57th annual Samuel P. Maggard Quality Concrete School is designed for concrete professionals, contractors, professional engineers and students.


Named for the late, long-time professor of civil engineering, Sam “Doc” Maggard, who established the annual training, the Quality Concrete School teaches the latest technologies for concrete applications. The 2021 program addresses a range of competencies from basic properties of concrete, sampling and testing to special topics such as cold weather concreting, in-transit concrete management and acceptance testing.
