Series Overview

The front lines of engineering are shifting and growing every day. Stay ahead of the curve on some the fastest-evolving technologies in North America with the Trenchless Technologies series, a set of workshops offered jointly by the UAlberta Faculty of Extension and the Consortium for Engineered Trenchless Technologies (CETT).

Combining hands-on applications with real-world situations, the Trenchless Technologies series helps students to build an understanding of trenchless construction and technology within applications geared for the oil and gas, telecommunications, and infrastructure industries.

Workshops also offer concepts to maximize material selection and procurement, streamline construction, and increase output while minimizing disruptions and risk. Geotechnical considerations and related construction innovations will also be covered.
