Career Series: Plan Reading Workshop

Date: Thursday, Sept. 10
Time: 6:30 PM
Location: KAP 147

Construction documents are critical to any civil engineering project. Whether you're working as a consultant to produce drawings for an architect or working for a contractor to implement drawings, understanding construction plans is critical to your future career success!

Join us this Thursday to learn more about and practice reading plans in an informal, social setting. We'll have a brief presentation with some tips, but the primary focus is to hang out and ask questions. To keep things interesting, we have dozens of printed plan sets from the ongoing USC Village project for your viewing pleasure. And they're not limited to architectural and structural drawings - we also have civil, grading, site utility, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and more! And of course, we'll have free food too.
