Professional Events

We organize several professional events throughout the year which include: 

  • Chicago Professional Weekend: This two-day tour presents the city from a structural engineering perspective, giving students an introduction to the local professional culture as well as the unique historic architecture and skyscrapers which comprise Chicago‚Äôs world-renowned skyline. 
  • Talks given by professionals: We invite professionals working at prestigious engineering and architecture companies to talk about relevant topics to our members. Topics include, bridge design, skyscrapers design, collaboration between architects and structural engineers, among others. 
  • SEI Webminar: Thanks to our status as a SEI graduate student chapter we have one free webminar per year which we use to provide the students the opportunity to learn about a topic from the experts on the field.
