Fourth UniQ-UB/MCEER Earthquake Engineering Seminar

Quisqueya University Campus, Haut Turgeau, Port-au-Prince, Haiti
August 1-23, 2011


Introduction

The fourth in a series of professional development earthquake engineering seminars presented by Haiti's Quisqueya University (UniQ) and the University at Buffalo's Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering Research (MCEER) offers nine programs that provide in-depth instruction on seismic design practices for Haiti.

Developed with UniQ faculty and based on Haitian construction practices, programs include lectures, hands-on exercises, design examples and in-field demonstrations. Seminars will be held August 1-25, 2011, at Quisqueya University, Haut Turgeau, in Port-au-Prince. Instructors are international experts from academia and practice. All lectures and seminar materials are presented in French. Advanced programs have been expanded to provide more class time and illustrative examples.

Seminar Topics

Seminars provide participants opportunities to Learn & Earn: learn established methods for earthquake engineering design and construction, and earn certificates for the equivalent of Professional Development Hours/Credits, which can be applied toward a future Master's degree in earthquake engineering from UniQ. Participants begin with the prerequisite** Introductory Program, and continue with Advanced Programs of their choice.

A CD of the course presentations will be provided in advance of the seminars.

Certificates of completion are awarded to all Introductory Program participants. Advanced Program participants who earn a passing grade on the technical exam receive a certificate of completion of training.
