Geotechnical Group Print E-mail
The mission of the Geotechnical Group is to provide members with opportunities to expand and share their knowledge and expertise of geotechnical engineering and geotechnical construction, particularly as it relates to the unique environment of the New York City metropolitan area. The Geotechnical Group aims to accomplish this through monthly technical lectures and annual specialty seminars. Attendees of the geotechnical lectures and seminar will receive accredited Professional Development Hours (PDHs) applied towards the Continuing Education Program of the P.E. licensing renewal. To learn about our upcoming technical lectures and seminars, please look at the event calendar on the right side of this page.

If you would like to present one of your projects at one of our monthly lectures, or if you have any particular geotech-related topic that may be of Section members' interest, please do not hesitate to contact any of the Geotechnical Group officers. To be included on our email list for future events or if you have any question or comments, please contact the Geotechnical Group Chair.
