Teach the Professors

Join our Teach The Professors Course

The UCA Teach the Profs Civil Underground Program aims to educate university professors, lecturers and instructors so that they can use tunnel design and construction concepts to teach and inspire geotechnical, structural, and construction engineering students in the classroom. We will bring you to a tunneling conference so you can see the application of civil engineering in the underground.  Our industry professionals will work with you to help develop materials for your junior level civil engineering course.  For more information on the program, including dates, join our waiting list.
