New year, new look for The Structural Engineer and website!
We are pleased to announce the launch of the Institution website and a new look for The Structural Engineer.
Friday 6 January saw the publication of The Structural Engineer in its fresh, new, monthly format. The issue has been well received - with members providing positive feedback to Institution staff and through social networking sites such as Twitter.
The Structural Engineer now has clearly demarcated sections with an improved layout and use of imagery. The new Technical Guidance Notes series and Professional Guidance section have proven particularly popular.
In addition to the new print format, The Structural Engineer website was launched as part of the wider Institution website redevelopment project. All articles are now in HTML format, allowing the user to enlarge images, graphs and tables with the latest content conveniently grouped by section so that members can quickly access articles of interest.
The new Institution website was launched the following Monday, 9 January. The site includes a more user-friendly structure and design, an improved search facility and news feeds.
There have also been some changes to the level of support that the Institution provides to Regional Groups. All regional information published on the website will now be carried out by Institution staff. Requests for new content should be sent to your regional Chairmen or Secretary for approval.
Our online jobs board is now also up and running. TheStructuralEngineerJobs is a dedicated platform for our members to search for their next career move. The facility allows users to search for jobs relating to a specific sector of the industry. Members can also register online to receive email alerts for the latest jobs - tailored specifically to your requirements.
The website development project is now entering its second phase where we will be working on areas such as the technical information sections and www.findanengineer.com. We aim to complete these by April 2012.
