University of Texas Hosts 39th Annual Grouting Short Course, Feb. 12-16, 2018

Texas Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin is hosting the 39th Annual Grouting Short Course. The course will be held in Austin, Texas, from Feb. 12-16, 2018. Please note this is an earlier date than in years past.

This is the new, updated edition of the original Grouting course that has been running for 39 years. Texas’ Cockrell School of Engineering is hosting this special event through its Texas Engineering Executive Education (TxEEE) unit. This past year, TxEEE hosted learners from around the world—from 5 continents and 12 countries. This truly is a world-class training event with the international grouting leaders teaching the latest best practices.
