Welcome to Geo Institute

The Los Angeles Geo-Institute Chapter is dedicated to the advancement of technical knowledge in the field of Geotechnical Engineering, the professional application of this knowledge to the solution of engineering problems, and the promotion of the geotechnical profession in the greater LA area.


Our board members are dedicated to make 2020 a fantastic year. Because the geotechnical engineering profession is undergoing rapid change in the nation, California and here in Los Angeles, our chapter is working hard to meet the challenges brought by these changes and to promote technical exchange amongst our geo-professionals. Toward that goal, our signature event: The annual spring seminar at the Queen Mary in April, will have nationally recognized and world renown presenters. I think you will find their presentations interesting and informative. I am eagerly looking forward to see you all at our events.
