27TH ANNUAL STRUCTURAL FORUM – “FRAMING THE FUTURE”

Framing the Future Poster

WHAT IS STRUCTURAL FORUM?
Structural Forum is hosted by the student chapter of Structural Engineering Association of California (SEAOC) in conjunction with the Cal Poly Architectural Engineering Department. The morning portion of Structural Forum usually consists of 2-3 industry speakers. The evening portion of Structural Forum is a two part event, including a “no-resume” career fair, followed by the keynote speech. During the career fair, companies are encouraged to set up booths for students to visit. Each student will choose an attending company to sit with during the dinner & keynote speech. Structural Forum usually attracts around 40 structural engineering companies and over 150 first through fourth year students.
 
Past speakers have included Jon Magnusson from Magnusson Klemencic Associates and Ashraf Habibullah from Computers & Structures Incorporated.
