The Masonry Society (TMS) will present the 2016 University Professors Masonry Workshop at the University of California, San Diego, Mar. 20-22, 2016. This is an ideal opportunity to bring together university educators with masonry industry leaders, TMS says. Following up on the success of 25 workshops since 1988, the 2016 University Professors Masonry Workshop will provide professors with the resources and background needed to effectively teach masonry design and construction classes at the university level. The goal of the workshop is to provide educators with the knowledge, tools, contacts, and resources to implement architecture and engineering masonry programs at their universities.
