About SEI-MD

Our chapter mission is to serve the Maryland structural engineering community and encourage professional and community service.

The Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) is a vibrant community of more than 20,000 structural engineers within the American Society of Civil Engineers. SEI started on October 1, 1996 in order to serve the unique needs of the structural engineering community while influencing change on broader issues that shape the entire civil engineering community.

SEI produces technical publications, journals, conferences, continuing education, codes and standards, and professional practice documents that advance the structural engineering profession.Because SEI members are leaders in structural engineering practice and academia, SEI provides great networking opportunities while stimulating coordination and understanding between academia and practicing engineers – driving the practical application of cutting edge research.

SEI advances our members’ careers, stimulates technological advancement, and improves professional practice.

SEI Maryland Chapter contributes to the Baltimore-Washington community by partnering with local engineering colleges, Johns 
Hopkins and Morgan State University. Full-time students are given free access to a majority of SEI events to encourage networking with practicing professionals. SEI board & committee members generously donate their time to K-12 career fairs to share their love of engineering and to encourage consideration of a future in the engineering sciences.
