The committee considers how structural engineering’s approach, skills and knowledge base will need to change in response to an evolving industry.
The committee works closely with the Engineering Leadership Group and the Head of Technical Secretariat Services to determine strategic priorities: how, where and when to supply members with related resources, training and events.
The committee also provides direction and oversight of the Digital Workflows and Computational Design Panel.
Membership of the Structural Futures Committee is a way to share your knowledge, provide thought leadership, and help prepare the profession for future challenges.
It also makes a valuable contribution to your Continuing Professional Development.
As a member you will attend four meetings a year, helping to shape the direction of Institution activity in the area of Structural Futures, with full access to all committee documents. You will undertake some work between meetings.
We invite expressions of interest in committee membership each September, contacting all members except Student Members.
Contact the committee if you have questions about their work.
