The American Society of Civil Engineers Structural Engineering Institute (ASCE-SEI) approved the formation of a Graduate Student Chapter at West Virginia University, effective Spring 2013. The WVU chapter is the second such chapter in the United States.

The Chapter’s mission is to promote graduate education in structural engineering, develop leadership skills, create professional development opportunities for current graduate students, and enhance networking with structural engineering professionals. The chapter is advised by Professor Udaya B. Halabe, ASCE, SEI and ASNT Fellow.
