Faculty/Professor's Workshop Scheduled for March 20-22, 2016 at UCSD

Following up on the success of 25 workshops since 1988, a 2016 University Professors’ Masonry Workshop is being planned for the University of California San Diego on March 20-22, 2016. Dr. Benson Shing at UCSD will serve as the host for the Workshop.

The UPMW is a forum for faculty who are teaching masonry, or will be teaching masonry, to learn about the design, specification, construction, and evaluation of masonry. Effective and innovative ways to teach this information to their students are discussed. The goal of the UPMW is simple: to assist professors teaching masonry so that students, who will be future designers and construction managers, are comfortable using masonry on their projects.

Additional details on the workshop will be posted here as it become available. Alternately, contact TMS at 303-939-9700 or info@masonrysociety.org for information on the workshop.

Held at Penn State in March, the 2015 University Professors’ Masonry Workshop was very successful and enjoyable for attendees. The Workshop provided professors with resources and background needed to effectively teach masonry design and construction classes at the university level. Leading professors, practitioners, and industry leaders reviewed the newest ideas in masonry education and research. The workshop featured separate tracks generally focused on architecture and engineering. In addition, numerous joint general sessions on masonry materials, design, and construction were presented. Attendees had the opportunity to lay brick at the Masonry Building Demonstration, and toured PSU’s Building Envelope Laboratory. A wealth of valuable information was presented to the attendees and the workshop provided helpful contacts with your colleagues and leading masonry professionals.
