Welcome to the SEAOI website! Whether you are a practicing engineer, a curious student, or an interested citizen, you can find the information you need here. SEAOI was founded in 1965 to advance and advocate excellence in structural engineering and to aid in safeguarding the public. In 2015, we celebrated 50 years of living out our mission in Illinois.

We can win this with your help!


Have YOU written an article about your field of work? Have YOU been interviewed and quoted in an article about structural engineering? Do you wish the general public had a better understanding of how important your work is? Now is your chance to show your peers how good you are at it!

NCSEA has introduced the first-ever Public Outreach Challenge. In this Challenge, SEAOI and its members will be competing against SEAs in every other state to see who does the most and best outreach. The winning SEA will be announced at the Structural Engineering Summit this November in Anaheim, CA. LEARN MORE/SUBMIT YOUR CONTENT HERE
