The Indian Association of Structural Engineers, identified as IAStructE, was conceptualized and constituted in the year 2002. IAStructE is national apex body of structural engineers in India established with the objective to cater to the overall professional needs of structural engineers. The association has become the source of expertise and information concerning all issues that involve structural engineering and public safety within the built environment. It has no commercial objective. IAStructE has signed MoU with Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) of UK, Japan Society of Seismic Isolation (JSSI), The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) of UK, Structural Engineers Association of Northern California (SEAONC), Structural Engineers Association of Nepal (SEANep) for exchange of information and promotion of Structural Engineering profession.
IAStructE is purely a professional learned society with the prime objective of supporting and protecting the profession of structural engineering by upholding professional standards and acting as a mouthpiece for structural engineers in India.
IAStructE endeavors to ensure that the members develop the necessary skill in structural engineering and work to the highest standards by maintaining a commitment to professional ethics and standards within structural engineering.
IAStructE strives for continued technical excellence; advancing safety and innovation across the built environment. It also strives to make available to the Government, Public Sector and Private Sector - a credible source of well qualified and experienced Structural Engineers. A nationwide database of Structural Engineers has been compiled and is being constantly updated.
The association provides opportunity for all the members to develop skills in structural engineering and helps members to be at the forefront of structural engineering practice. Towards achievement of its aims and objectives, IAStructE is engaged in organizing the following:
- CPD Courses for Professionals
- Refresher Courses for young engineers
- Student's orientation program
- Technical Lectures & Technical Discussions
IAStructE is currently operating from four regional / state centers. These regional centers are located in the Eastern, Western, Northern and Southern parts of the country.
