Becoming a Designated Structural Engineer (Struct.Eng.) represents the last step for those who wish to assume full responsibility for the primary structural system and become the structural engineer of record for part 3 buildings built in Vancouver and Burnaby. Requirements for the designation takes significant time, skill, and experience to meet.
This seminar will provide both insight into the entire process through the viewpoint of an SEABC director and a detailed look into the SE exam path to licensure.
