Concrete Conference

In 1950, concrete industry professionals met with University of Minnesota engineering faculty and continuing education staff to design a professional development program for engineers, contractors, architects, consultants, educators, and engineering students. The result, an inaugural conference in December 1951, became an annual University offering now in its 64th year.

Through the years, concrete construction concepts and technology have changed in response to new and recurring challenges facing the industry. Performance, durability, restoration, repair, innovation, and research continue to be important topics for those involved in concrete construction. Conference presenters include practicing engineers, engineering faculty, and consultants who will offer information on current technology and practice.
