Lectures Topics include:
Please join TDI and faculty from the colleges of Engineering, Forestry and Design at OSU and UO for a research seminar series designed to share what's going on in the mass timber research world at a high level to a general audience.

Registration will be through our Critical Mass Timber Meetups Group, so please visit the page to learn more and join! (registration is opened typically three weeks before the event start date).
