18th Annual Bridge Symposium

The Structural Engineers Association of Illinois (SEAOI) and NCSEA have teamed up to deliver the 18th Annual Bridge Symposium virtually. This Bonanza of Bridge Education will be delivered over four weeks in four webinars by some of the industry’s best and brightest. This Symposium provides a forum for engineers to share bridge analysis, design, and construction ideas from recent project successes and failures, focusing on many unique and distinguishing characteristics. The symposium will present countless lessons from which every SE can learn and grow.

The information is critical to practicing structural engineers, trained designers, plan review agencies, professors and students from across the nation as you can all learn from examples of designs engineered to perform.

The registration fee for the Bridge Symposium is $395 for members ($495 for nonmembers), which includes all 8 hours of recorded education.

  • Purchase all 4 webinars in the Seminar and have access to the recordings for 1 Year.
  • Each seminar purchase is per office location. If your firm is operating remotely, please review the Webinar FAQ's on how to accommodate multiple users from the same location.

Please note: These webinars are not included in the NCSEA Webinar Subscription.
