The 7th African Young Geotechnical Engineers’ Conference provides up and coming geotechnical practitioners under the age of 35 an opportunity to write and present at a conference in a constructive environment as well as meeting other young like-minded individuals across the country.

The African Regional Conference (ARC), preceding the AYGE conference, will also initiate dialogue between junior and senior engineers while young geotechnical engineers acquaint themselves with the industry standards, new geotechnical developments and resources available to further their careers.

Who should attend?

Geotechnical practitioners under the age of 35 in the mining and civil engineering industry. More experienced geotechnical practitioners are encouraged to motivate the YGE ‘s working under them to attend the conference and explain the advantages of presenting their work at the conference.
