Study groups encourage debate about a wide variety of structural engineering topics.
Anyone with an interest in a particular topic can become a member of the study group, it is by no means limited to members of the Institution. Indeed, each study group is free to decide its own mode of operation, including the frequency, type and location of meetings.
If you would like to become involved with a study group, please contact the appropriate manager of the study group, known as the convenor, by clicking on the link of the study group you are interested in above.
The study groups are supported by the Engineering Practice Committee, which appoints the group convenors.
Currently, the areas covered by the Institution's study groups are as follows:
Deepening and developing a greater interest and knowledge of the management and maintenance of bridges of every kind.
Disseminate and advance knowledge by bringing together consulting engineers, architects, contractors, manufacturers and researchers.
The Fire Engineering Study Group was created due to the fact that fire engineering is still converting from a prescribed to a performance based discipline.
Discuss historical aspects of structural engineering, particularly in relation to the evolution of present day engineering methods
The Management of Structures Study Group was set up to discuss how structural engineers can actively manage structures once they are in use.
The purpose of the Nuclear Standards Study Group is to identify and promote common standards for structural engineering of nuclear facilities
Discuss all aspects of major venue design, from conception to analysis and optimisation of all the structural elements, fabrication, delivery and construction issues.
The Structural Analysis and Design Education Study Group was set up to discuss the challenges in the education and training of engineers.
