New Class of Certified Geo-Professionals Inducted
April 21, 2010

The American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Academy of Geo-Professionals has announced the induction of the newest class of recipients of the Diplomate in Geotechnical Engineering (D.GE) certification. The group of 41 engineers has completed a lengthy certification process that includes graduate coursework, professional experience and an oral defense of the application. The certifications were presented recently at a ceremony at the GeoFlorida conference in West Palm Beach, Fla.

The Academy of Geo-Professionals was founded in October 2008 by the members of ASCE’s Geo-Institute with the goal of providing advanced certification to geotechnical engineers. The first certifications were awarded in March 2009, and the number of engineers who have earned the D.GE is now more than 150.
