NMSU's Quality Concrete School set for January

New Mexico State University's Engineering New Mexico Resource Network will start off the New Year with its 49th Annual Samuel P. Maggard 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. 3-5 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, ultra high-performance concrete and quality control case studies.

The Quality Concrete School is a combined effort by NMSU and the New Mexico Ready Mix Concrete and Aggregates Association to improve concrete education within the construction and engineering industries. Our main goal is simply to improve the quality of concrete construction in our region," said Craig Newtson, associate professor of civil engineering at NMSU.

NMSU civil engineering professors and the New Mexico Ready Mix Concrete and Aggregates Association will facilitate the lectures and workshops.

The course will be held on the NMSU Las Cruces campus. For more information or to register, visit http://www.engr.nmsu.edu/outreach_concrete.shtml or email engr-nm@nmsu.edu.
