Structural Futures Committee
About the Committee
The Structural Futures Committee consists of a Chair and up to 13 professionally registered volunteer Members of the Institution, or co-opted experts. The Committee members are all experienced practitioners and are able to provide guidance to the Institution's wider membership on topics which may affect Members or the construction industry in the next 20 + years.
Membership of the Structural Futures Committee is a good way to play an active role in providing thought leadership on topics that may affect the built environment.
Membership of the Committee involves attending four meetings a year, and actively contributing to the activities of the Committee. As a member you will have full access to all Structural Futures Committee meeting minutes and other related documents.
All Institution Members are invited, in the Autumn, to apply to join the Committee for the following session and should provide background information relating to their experience within the subject matter covered by the Committee.
The Structural Futures Committee has the remit to ask questions and formulate responses about the future of structural engineering and the profession, reflecting current and future changes and trends that may impact the profession. In particular, the Committee will consider how the profession’s approach, skills and knowledge base will need to change in response to an evolving industry.
As part of this remit the Structural Futures Committee will provide direction and oversight of the work of the Digital Workflows and Computational Design Panel.
The Structural Futures Committee works closely with the Engineering Leadership Group and the Head of Technical Secretariat Services to determine strategic priorities in these areas.
