The course aims to cover all the major aspects of an underground project's life and contains worked examples and workshop sessions to allow improved interaction between delegates and speaker. It is aimed at the wide range of professional services that support the tunnelling industry, including clients, tunnel operators and members of the financial and insurance sectors that may have a vested interest in tunnelling enterprises, as well as young tunnel design and construction engineers.

The course speakers are all industry experts in their own fields and the course is recognised within the industry as providing the highest standard of technical content. The course material is presented in a format designed to engage and inform attendees from a wide range of backgrounds.

To date, sponsorship has been offered and until details for 2019 have been confirmed the 2018 form can be viewed, for reference only, on the course sponsorship page.
