Mega Civil Friday 2021 Slated For Friday At Convention Center
The Civil Engineers Institute (IIC), which is part of the Puerto Rico College of Engineers and Surveyors, will celebrate its annual summit event, Mega Civil Friday 2021, on July 16, at the Puerto Rico Convention Center in Miramar.
This year, the event dubbed Route to the Future, presents a robust academic offer, highly technical, and with current issues for civil engineers and other professionals.
“Civil engineers are already eager to socialize as usual in their Mega Civil Friday event and participate in continuing education, which for 22 years has offered them with the best technical contribution and industry relations,” Civil Engineers Institute President José Luis Flores said.
“We are extremely pleased to be resuming in-person activities, taking all the Covid-19 health measures while offering seven hours of contact in one day with in-person and virtual modules.”
In addition, attendees will witness a panel composed of the leading agency heads that work on relevant issues about Puerto Rico’s infrastructure and economy. Government officials will speak with attendees about what has been achieved and what remains to be done on the road to the recovery after the passage of Hurricane Maria, the earthquakes and the Covid-19 pandemic. Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTOP by its Spanish acronym) Secretary Eileen Vélez and Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA) Executive Director Doriel Pagán are some government officials participating in the event.
Economic Development Secretary Manuel Cidre will also participate in the event, presenting his vision and action plan for the island’s economic future.
Gov. Pedro Pierluisi has also been invited as a speaker.
The event will consist of nine technical modules covering topics such as transportation, structures, earthquakes, geotechnics, project management, applied geomatics or surveying, water, and environmental resources and a virtual module. These add up to 27 seminars, in which engineers will be able to complete seven hours of continuing education, accredited by the Puerto Rico College of Engineers and Surveyors.
