The Institution of Structural Engineers Young Members’ Panel are holding the second Young Engineers’ Conference in July at Institution HQ, London.

This year, the theme is 'Structural Engineering in a Changing World' - exploring engineering for international development from the perspective of engineers working as consultants and in the field. Keynote speaker Tom Newby, Head of Humanitarian at CARE International UK, will examine the role of engineers following disasters.

  • Date: 10 July 2017
  • Location: The Institution of Structural Engineers HQ, 47-58 Bastwick Street, London, EC1V 3PS, UK
  • Cost: £25 (£15 for Student members)

Registration is now closed.


The conference, designed and developed by young engineers for young engineers, aims to provide young engineers with a platform for exploring important issues and to discuss career opportunities within the engineering industry. It is a fantastic occasion to network withyour peers and leading industry professionals, contribute to your CPD, and much more.

The day will include a sketching and drawing workshop run by Trevor Flynn from Drawing at Work. Attendees will be provided with a sketchbook, pens, pencils and other materials to use during this session.

 Many post-disaster shelter projects place ‘building back better’ at the heart of their design. This frequently  means a strong emphasis on structural safety and robustness of buildings. This is a structural engineer’s  definition of ‘better’. But, in seeking to control the evident structural risks that engineers see and understand,  other less evident risks are often missed or exacerbated. These risks, ranging from losing access to  livelihoods to social exclusion, may be far more urgent and relevant to the safety, dignity and survival of  disaster-affected people than the structural robustness of their buildings. So what is the role of engineers  after disasters?
