The FIStructE grade recognises members who make outstanding contributions to structural engineering, demonstrate exceptional commitment and energise industry or education through their leadership.
There are many attributes that mark you out as a potential Fellow: first and foremost a significant contribution in the field of structural engineering coupled with a commitment to Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
You might demonstrate these qualities through technical expertise, your work developing new technologies, your leading design role on projects of international significance, your valuable research, your inspirational teaching, or the major role you play promoting the profession.
Fellowship demonstrates to clients and colleagues that you have been recognised by your peers as a leading figure in structural engineering.
As a senior figure in the Institution you have the opportunity to inspire younger members by giving talks and contributing to other events at HQ and near you.
