The 2017 Day of Training was held at the Fayetteville Town Center on March 16. To review the event, click here.


In 2017, our event focused on four main Training Goals:

  • Body of Knowledge
  • Local Affairs
  • Government/Regulatory
  • Professional Development

These goals will be achieved by hosting a broad program of speakers from the state agencies, engineering consulting firms, private companies, and local officials you need to keep you up to date with civil engineering in Northwest Arkansas.




The Northwest Branch always encourages student attendance at the Day of Training. The University of Arkansas Student Chapter will host a booth in the exhibit hall, and student registration for the conference is free. Students are welcome to attend as many technical sessions as desired. This event is a great opportunity to network with NWA professionals and learn some real-world engineering concepts to show off to an interviewer or professor! Student registration is free with UA ID number, but we request you follow the registration link so we have a headcount and can provide you with a nametag. 

The Northwest Branch also provides scholarships from the proceeds of this event to rising UA civil engineering students. Preference is given to academically accoplished ASCE Student Chapter Members who are involved in the ASCE Mid-Continent Competition. Consult the UA ASCE Student Chapter Advisor for more details on the scholarship.
