Today's students are the future of the trenchless technology industry, and they will be tomorrow's problem solvers who help turn ideas into reality.
The rapidly developing field of trenchless underground methodology represents the leading edge of construction technology today. Students enrolled full-time in construction management, engineering and other related professional programs are seeking opportunities to keep abreast of these developments. One of the most effective ways of accomplishing this is by combining these individual efforts in the form of a student chapter. NASTT has 19 student chapters throughout North America.
NASTT is pleased to offer its annual student scholarship program established in the memory of Michael E. Argent, who is recognized as one of the industry’s true visionaries and a motivating force behind the growth of trenchless technology. In 1990, Michael was one of five persons who founded NASTT. Through this scholarship program established in his memory, it is hoped that Michael’s contributions to the industry will continue to inspire young trenchless professionals.

By participating in a NASTT Student Chapter and attending NASTT’s No-Dig Show, students have the opportunity to learn first-hand how important trenchless technology is to our community and our environment.
NASTT’s No-Dig Show offers over 160 paper sessions, and students are encouraged to sit in on as many sessions as possible when they are not assigned a volunteer task. All students who attend the show as volunteers are required to participate in at least five papers throughout the show and must be scanned in and out of the classroom for their hours to be tracked. You do not need to pre-register for the specific tracks and papers you would like to attend.
Students registered for the conference can participate in these activities:
On campus, student chapters are involved in a number of activities throughout the academic year including field trips, seminars and fundraisers. Members of student chapters also attend and participate in NASTT’s No-Dig Show where they present posters that describe their trenchless research, participate in competitions and provide staff support such as monitoring the technical paper sessions. There are many benefits associated with establishing a NASTT student chapter at your university – scholarships, networking opportunities, education, learning and growth, career opportunities and much more!
