The 49th Dredging Engineering Short Course is scheduled for January 6-10, 2020 at Texas A&M University in College Station.
The course – held each year in January in College Station, Texas – includes a mixture of lectures, laboratories and discussion on the university campus.
The event is administered by the Center for Dredging Studies, located in the Department of Ocean Engineering and College of Engineering’s Continuing Education Office at the university.
The center was established in 1968 as a result of conferences held between educators, representatives of the dredging industry, manufacturers, and officials at Texas A&M University.
In addition to research and industrial testing, the center’s activities include teaching university courses and providing annual seminars and short courses concerning advances in dredging engineering technology.
The center also actively generates reports, participates in regional, national and international dredging conferences and has a cutter suction dredge simulator.
