"Very well prepared presentations. Interesting historical information highlighted the difference in project development using early engineering concepts compared to technology available today."
– Steven Dewolf

"Dr. Karl Frank was one of the best presentation of the entire conference. Real-world examples we can learn from! Case study presentations like this are the best to learn from."
- Scott Anderson

Past attendees of our Forensics Engineering Conference praise "the diversity of the course material in addition to top notch professionals” and “the incredible amount of experience and information shared by both the instructors and participants."

"Great case studies to show use of FRP is more general than just confining columns that need strengthening! The information is useful and educational! These presentations are good exposure to unknown areas of Forensics."
– past participant
