CSUN EERI Seismic Design Team

Get to know us!

The EERI student chapter focuses on developing technical skills through a hands-on structural seismic design competition where university students are challenged to design and construct model structures to withstand simulated seismic forces. Structures are subjected to realistic earthquake simulations on a shake table, which replicates the ground motions experienced during an earthquake. Judges evaluate the teams' designs based on criteria like structural integrity, performance under seismic conditions, cost-effectiveness, and architectural creativity. Students develop leadership and interpersonal skills while gaining practical experience within earthquake engineering fields

Our competition will be held in Seattle, WA from April 9th-12th 2024. The competition not only fosters hands-on learning and practical experience but also provides a platform for students to network with professionals in the earthquake engineering field, helping them develop valuable skills and connections for their future careers. Our student chapter focuses on helping students develop leadership and interpersonal skills while gaining practical experience within earthquake engineering fields.
