About the Structural College Western Australia

We seek to encourage people working in the field of structural engineering to become active participants in its affairs. The Panel promotes the special interests of structural engineers within the institution.

The activities of the Panel are managed by a committee drawn from various industry sectors, such as commercial and general construction and offshore engineering. The Panel includes senior and younger engineers and organises a range of activities throughout the year. These include talks, field visits, seminars, short courses and training workshops.
