7th Annual D80 Conference a Success!

Monday, October 21st, 2013

Thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s D80 Conference!   The conference featured 12 presentations and 2 workshops by Michigan Tech undergraduate and graduate students, along with one workshop by a faculty member on behalf of a student overseas.  The keynote presentation by Professor James Boyce, University of Massachusetts, illustrated some social and economic “pitfalls” that can affect engineering project outcomes, and encouraged students to think holistically about benefits and costs, as well as who gains and loses from a project.

All presentations are available for viewing on-line:
