    Hello Everyone,



    the September issue of e-newsletter, 
    you will find the latest industry news of interest 
    to structural engineers, directly from our 
    , which 
    features daily articles written by structural engineering professionals.

    More publications have also been added in the online library database 
    and new upcoming events were added in the

    The structural job section of continues to bring to you the latest jobs in the industry! Remember, you can post a job opening or search for one completely free!

    Our team is also very excited to launch the new website of, the Center for Integrating Information on Civil Engineering. The new website is an aggregator of content in the entire civil engineering field and is well integrated with our 
    other websites, TheStructuralEngineer.infoGeoengineer.organd If you are looking for news in the broad civil engineering industry, visit News Center daily! 

    As always, if you have any feedback, or wish to partner with our network of Centers please contact us! 

    Until next month, team
