In episode 120 of The Civil Engineering Podcast, you are going to hear interviews from my recent visit to the ASCE Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) Structures Congress. The interviews will cover both technical and professional development topics related to civil and structural engineering as well as personal development including effective communication skills for engineers.
In episode 02 of The Structural Engineering Channel podcast, we will be taking you with us back to the ASCE SEI Structures Congress in Orlando where we interviewed some guests on the current state of the structural engineering industry. This is actually one of two episodes from ASCE’s Structural Engineering Institute(SEI Structures Congress). The other episode will be published on June, 19 on The Civil Engineering Podcast, in an effort to give the Congress more visibility.
Here Are Some of the Questions We Ask Our Guests in This Episode:
- What are some of the things that excite you about structural engineering?
- How do you determine what you need to focus your time and energy on?
- Talk about your thoughts on structural engineering being a commodity?
- What is it like being a professor and working with students in the real beginnings of their engineering careers?
- Do you think it’s important for structural engineers to gain practical experience in the field?
Here Are Some of the Key Points Discussed About the Structural Engineering Industry:
Structural engineering, like most engineering industries, is constantly evolving with technical guidelines, new techniques, and updated standards. There are also new and exciting structural engineering projects being completed every day worldwide.
This niche industry deserves its own podcast to cover these issues, and therefore the Engineering Management Institute (EMI) is excited to be launching The Structural Engineering Podcast (TSEP). TSEP will cover items including but not limited to performance-based design, fasteners and connections, post-tensioned structures, smart structures, tsunami modeling, software solutions, seismic design, blast resistant design, wood, business issues, professional development for structural engineers, how to specify things effectively, and many more topics.
The podcast will be sponsored by Computers and Structures, Inc. (CSI) and we are grateful for their support. (CSI) Computers and Structures, Inc. is recognized globally as the pioneering leader in software tools for structural and earthquake engineering. Software from CSI is used by thousands of engineering firms in over 160 countries for the design of major projects.
