Geo-Congress College Outreach Event
Sunday, 26 March 2023
2:00 – 5:00 pm PDT
Geotechnical engineers play a significant role in helping communities and businesses to create sustainable infrastructure solutions from the ground up. Geotechnical engineers study the engineering behavior of earth materials as it relates to the design and construction of infrastructure society uses every day. Some of this infrastructure includes buildings, dams, levees, and retaining structures, just to name a few. If you’d like to learn more about this exciting field and help to find solutions to solve our society’s greatest challenges, please consider joining for this educational event!

The American Society of Civil Engineers Geo-Institute (G-I) Geo-Congress conference is partnering with the G-I Outreach and Engagement Committee (OEC) to inform Los Angeles area students about geotechnical engineering!
Students will have the opportunity to meet practicing geotechnical engineers and students, learn about geotechnical feats that exist within their community, and get excited about a future in our field!
The event will involve a presentation about geotechnical engineering and an interactive walking tour in Downtown LA to highlight geotechnical infrastructure.
