SCE civil engineering professors, Drs. ZhiQiang Chen and John Kevern were invited speakers at the March 20, 2014 Missouri Society of Professional Engineers Western Chapter (MSPE WC) monthly meeting.

Dr. Kevern provided a talk on the Advances in Pervious Concrete and Dr. Chen spoke on the Disaster Resilience through Collaborative Remote Sensing and Crowdsourcing.   Both presentations earned attendees professional development hours.
