af3dac9c-3.jpgHere’s a web seminar next week on technology related to civil engineering, and it’s eligible for continuing education PDH credits.

When: Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2007
2 p.m. EST, 1 p.m. CST, 11 a.m. PST

Summary: Explore the role of 3-D modeling, GIS, GPS machine control, and 3-D laser scanning in civil engineering. Shanon Fauerbach, P.E., editorial director of CE News, and Todd Nochomson, CAD Systems Manager for Miller Legg, will host a free one-hour virtual seminar, revealing the results of a recent research project and providing insight from a savvy technology professional. They will discuss how the civil engineering community is using these technologies and what future expectations are for their use. Nochomson will provide a user perspective, sharing his experiences with 3-D modeling and thoughts on the other technologies discussed. This presentation will be more in-depth than the article presented in the November issue of CE News, so if you are interested in these technologies, don’t miss it! Read more…

Take Part in the Egress Stairs Symposium in New York City
