2016 University Professors' Masonry Workshop

The 2016 University Professors' Masonry Workshop was held on March 20-22 at the University of California San Diego where Dr. Benson Shing served as host for the event. A report on the highlights of the workshop is available here.

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.
