The Trenchless Technology Center (TTC) at Louisiana Tech University (LA Tech) is pleased inform you that we are partnering with the ASCE UESI (Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute) and the National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA) to offer the 2nd UIS. This short course will give practitioners the knowledge and tools to provide competent utility investigations in accordance with accepted national standards (ASCE 38-02) and to defend against claims through this knowledge and its documentation.

Feb 26, 2018 - Mar 02, 2018
Target groups: engineers, technicians, students
Category: Seminar


In addition to the classroom lectures, practical sessions will be held where participants will be offered hands-on experience with the GPR, PCL, and etc. This 5-day school will be taught by the foremost experts in the geophysics and subsurface utility engineering field.

This 5-day school has been designer for:

  • Engineers and surveyors and project managers providing deliverables that include results and depictions of utility investigations.
  • Consulting engineers, Employees of utility companies, state DOTs and local highway agencies, regulatory agencies, local governments, etc.

It has been reported that over 379,000 utility hits occurred last year costing the industry billions of dollars and numerous loss of lives. The best insurance that you can obtain is being informed. This course is specifically designed for professionals by international leaders in subsurface utility engineering (SUE). They will teach you how to identify and manage the risk associated with all aspects related to underground utilities. Don’t let your project be one of the 70% which experience delays due to utilities!

Come join us for a week at LA Tech in beautiful Ruston, LA where you will be able to tour the world-class National Trenchless Technology Research Facility. This facility was built on the LA Tech and financed through contributions from TT industry leaders.
