Through mountains, under rivers, beneath cities... tunnels are no boring story! In this course, we will take you underground to explore the history and ingenuity behind some of the world's tunneling marvels. Besides the challenges of tunneling through various types of soil/rock, we will discuss in detail the three steps to a tunnel's success: excavation, support and lining. In addition, we will address how to reduce fire hazards during tunnel operations. Course highlights include the Hoosac Tunnel, London Underground, Holland Tunnel, Channel Tunnel (Chunnel), Marmaray Tunnel, and Gotthard Base Tunnel. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.

Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors.

You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform.
