The University of Oklahoma’s Geotechnical Engineering research group has a close relationship with many of the local geotechnical engineering consulting firms in the area. These firms donate drill rig time and in situ testing demonstrations for class exercises as well as provide student event and conference sponsorship. In addition, Terracon has been supporting select OU Geotechnical Engineering graduate students with scholarship monies for the past seven years. We appreciate their scholarship support of our students and encourage more companies to join our consortium. Phil Wood, engineering manager of the Oklahoma City Terracon office, came to present the check to us recently. You can read about their additional philanthropic efforts here: http://www.terracon.com/2016/07/12/terracon-foundation-awards-105500-in-grants/
