Structural Engineering in a Changing World. The Role of the Institution in a Time of Change

From its inception as the Concrete Institute in 1908, the Institution of Structural Engineers, as it became in 1922, has constantly been operating within a framework of change-technical, social, and economic. In common with most professional bodies, the Institution has adapted to the changes and responded to the challenges during its 75 years, by so doing thus defining and creating its role. The celebration of the 50th Anniversary was marked by a Golden Jubilee Issue of The Structural Engineer and a conference in which the response to change was clearly presented for the first half-century. This special issue attempts to do likewise for the past quarter-century, a period during which the rate of change has certainly been greater than before. Roy Rowe
