The skills required by structural engineer in the past were always well defined and remained mainly within the technical domain, however the situation has now changed. The modern structural engineer must be creative, communicative, and able to work with others in an international setting involving social and environmental issues. This means that a new type of education is needed. This conference will examine how the training of both engineers and architects has changed to face these new challenges.


The main themes of the Conference are the following (the list is not restrictive):

  • Innovations in education.

    • Active learning methodologies.

    • New assessment tools.

    • Multidisciplinary education.

    • Internet based teaching (MOOCs, webminars, etc.).

    • New learning spaces.

    • Outreach activities to promote structural engineering and architecture.

    • Other innovations.

  • New challenges and topics in the education of the structural engineer.

    • Development of transversal skills such as critical thinking, creativity and communication abilities.

    • Conceptual design.

    • Engineering and the arts.

    • Structural engineering, society and entrepreneurship.

    • Sustainability.

    • Structural Art, Construction History, Philosophy of Structures.

    • Cooperation with the developing countries

    • Ethics in structural design.

    • New construction materials.

    • Computational design tools (BIMs…).

    • Other topics and challenges.

Program of Events

The events will include workshops, keynote lectures, seminar sessions and traditional oral presentations. Special sessions on specific topics can be proposed and organised by those attending, subject to approval by the scientific committee.
