Tunneling is booming. Forecasts show tremendous growth in tunnel projects over the next decade – across water and wastewater, transportation, energy, utilities and loop/hyperloop. Mines is the place to get your foot in the door and boost your knowledge. This comprehensive four day agenda includes
topics ranging from planning to design to construction of tunnels for all purposes and across all types of ground conditions. Technical leaders from all areas of the tunneling industry will teach key principles and the latest innovations. Numerous upcoming US and international tunneling projects will be highlighted. Five owner representatives will provide insights into this growing and evolving industry. And Mines faculty and students share the latest R&D innovations that will soon impact the industry, including results from a major rapid tunneling technology initiative underway.
Offered right on campus by the Center for Underground, the Tunneling short course capitalizes on the state-of-the-art labs and facilities at Colorado School of Mines, giving attendees a unique opportunity to interact with the most sophisticated and innovative technologies in the tunneling industry. Hands-on
labs each afternoon provide big leaps in knowledge through learning by doing. Our unique labs include EPB soil conditioning, EPB TBM simulator, rock cutting, abrasivity and wear, shotcrete, and annulus grouting, to name a few. There will also be networking opportunities abound, both industry to industry as well as with our many students studying to enter the industry. By learning from and speaking with key firms, contractors, and engineers about the biggest projects of our time, the goal of the short course is for participants to come away with a clear picture of where this fast-paced and dynamic industry is
heading. The Tunneling Fundamentals, Applications and Innovations Short Course takes place October 19-22 at Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado.
