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

Following up on the success of 25 workshops since 1988, a 2016 University Professorsí 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.

Contact TMS at 303-939-9700 or info@masonrysociety.org if you have questions or need additional information on the workshop.
