International No-Dig is delighted to announce a Student Masterclass at this year’s event
The highlight of the student masterclass will be a series of Trenchless Technology masterclasses introducing young engineers to the basic principles and fundamental economic and environmental benefits of key technologies such as Microtunnelling, HDD, Pipe Ramming, Auger Boring and Pipe Bursting as well as more established rehabilitation methods such as Cured in Place Pipe, Spray Lining, Spiral Wound Lining, Fold and Form and Close Fit Lining.
Students will also learn about vital supporting technologies including geotechnical and condition assessment surveys. The masterclass, based on the ISTT Masterclass concept, will prepare the students for a closing session where they will benefit from a hosted tour of the exhibition to see first-hand the latest innovations in technology and service provision.
Commentating on the masterclass, Westrade Managing Director, Paul Harwood said: “The Student Masterclass fits perfectly with the very forward-looking nature that is No-Dig Helsinki. This high growth and innovative sector is an exciting place for the engineers of the future and it is great to be able to support their development and increase their understanding of the opportunities available to them.”
