East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes Program (EAPSI) now calling for applicants

In partnership with the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), the Royal Society of New Zealand administers the East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes Program (EAPSI).

Each year, the EAPSI program provides 15 U.S. graduate students in science and engineering first-hand research experience to conduct research in New Zealand laboratories and to initiate personal relationships with their New Zealand counterparts. The program also introduces the students to New Zealand science policy infrastructure and provides an orientation to New Zealand culture. Participants in the program represent a wide variety of research areas and are hosted by various institutions, including universities and crown research institutes across New Zealand.

  • This message is to advise that the U.S.-based call for applicants is currently open. In 2015, the NSF will select 15 excellent students to visit New Zealand beginning June 2016
  • The submission deadline for applications is Thursday, November 5, 2015
  • Please note that applicants to the EAPSI program must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents
  • The Royal Society of New Zealand will support the 8-week visit, hosting a 2-day Orientation program for the successful Fellows in Wellington, New Zealand.

SE Apprentice Web Seminar Series

Are you a Student in Civil/Structural Engineering who would like to learn additional technical information to help you start your career as a structural engineer?

Carrie Bremer, PE of Schaefer and Stephen Metz, PE of SMBH are excited to be involved in SE Apprentice, aimed at bringing examples of real-world engineering problems to students.

In a carefully crafted series of presentations, Carrie and Stephen will guide students through the design of an actual project – the South Central Chiller Plant Generator Building at The Ohio State University. This series aims to present ideas and concepts not typically learned in class, and combine these with real world knowledge of how a building and project come together, to help give students an idea of what to expect on a project they would work on in the office.

Currently on the schedule for SE Apprentice are the following four live web seminars:

Session 1: Loads; What are they and Where do they Come From?

Thursday, October 15th:  6:00 – 7:00 pm EDT

Session 2: Structural Systems and Load Paths

Wednesday, October 28th:  6:00 – 7:00 pm EDT

Session 3: Design and Coordination

Thursday, November 12th:  6:00 – 7:00 pm EST

Session 4: Contract Documents

Wednesday, November 18th:  6:00 – 7:00 pm EST


All sessions will begin at 6pm Eastern Time, and last for 60 minutes.

These sessions will be most applicable to Seniors and Graduate Students, and may also be helpful for younger students.
