The Committee considers how structural engineering's approach, skills and knowledge base will need to change in response to an evolving industry. This is achieved by working closely with the Engineering Leadership Group to determine strategic priorities: how, where and when to supply members with related resources, training and events. Topics include:
- Evolving technologies
- The climate emergency
- The role of the structural engineer in the future
The Committee also provides direction and oversight to the Digital Workflows and Computational Design Panel.
The constitution of the Committee aims to reflect the diversity of the Institutions membership and to provide different perspectives.
- Vice Chair
- Chair of the reporting Panel
- Up to 28 other members (including members of various grades and those based in different locations)
We invite expressions of interest in Committee membership each September, contacting all members except Student Members.

Members of the Committee are expected to fully participate in supporting and driving the Committee's activities forward.
There are many ways that you can contribute to the activities of the group, and you will be expected to do some work outside the meetings, for example drafting or reviewing guidance and keeping up to date on the latest developments around the topics the Committee is involved with.
The Committee meet four times a year. A maximum of one meeting will be in person at Institution HQ, whilst all other meetings are held online. Online access to meetings is always available.
Contact the committee if you have questions about their work.
