Earthquake Engineering Research Institute/Structural Engineering Association of SoCal (EERI-SEAOSC at UCLA) serves to inspire the next generation of earthquake engineering professionals and researchers through exposure to interdisciplinary research, mentorship from industry professionals, and access to a community of motivated student members from across Southern California. The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) is a national, nonprofit, technical society comprised of engineers, geoscientists, architects, planners, public officials, and social scientists - ( We are dedicated to the advancement of earthquake engineering education and research for the purpose of reducing seismic hazard worldwide. The Structural Engineering Association of Southern California exists to empower the regional community of structural engineers and advance the profession, by way of providing technical resources, community engagement, professional development, and policy advocacy - ( Our student chapter is interested in engaging with local professionals for the purpose of serving our community with relevance and excellence in structural engineering. Our chapter also hosts research roundtables for students to become familiar with departmental research initiatives, in addition to organizing professional guest speakers and field trips to partner offices across Southern California. This year we will be hosting our inaugural career fair and research symposium. Our chapter is open to all students in the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department, as well as related fields (architecture, urban planning, etc.)
