Southwest Geotechnical Engineering Conference

The SWGEC encourages state and local transportation departments within the region to present on local innovations and topics.


The SWGEC Returns in 2024!

The Southwest Geotechnical Engineering Conference is in its 47th session, and for the first time since 2019 is returning as an in-person event you won’t want to miss. The conference is targeted toward geotechnical practitioners in State Departments of Transportation and those involved in geotechnical fields related to the transportation industry. The conference will bring together designers, practitioners, vendors, researchers, and students to share and discuss advances and opportunities in Geotechnical, Geological, Geophysical, and Geoenvironmental Engineering specific to the Southwestern US.
