About the Team

We are a group of undergraduate students with keen interests in structural and seismic design from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. With the help of our supervising professor from the Faculty of Civil Engineering, we conduct research and design on seismic structures that are structurally stable and resilient to the extreme and unpredictable forces of earthquakes. We promote the study and research on structural and earthquake engineering primarily by allowing students to apply engineering concepts and seismic technologies learned in class to our projects. Students are also provided with the opportunity to network with engineers working in the industry for further career development.
