Following up on the success of 24 workshops since 1988, the 2015 University Professors’ Masonry Workshop will provide professors with resources and background needed to effectively teach masonry design and construction classes at the university level. As a workshop participant, you’ll hear leading professors, practitioners, and industry leaders relate the newest ideas in masonry education and research. The workshop features separate tracks generally focused on architecture and engineering. In addition, numerous joint general sessions on masonry materials, design, and construction will be presented. You will have the opportunity to try your hand at bricklaying at the Masonry Building Demonstration, and tour of PSU’s Building Envelope Laboratory. You will also receive a wealth of valuable information and gain helpful contacts as you meet with your colleagues and leading masonry professionals.
