Structural Engineering Institute (SEI)

The Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) Orange County Chapter allows our members to interact with other professionals in the structural field of civil engineering.  We regularly send active Orange County branch members to SEI Congresses held on a annual bases across the country.  We hope the Orange County Branch members will learn new ideas and find interesting speaker topics that we can bring back to our local branch members.  Periodically SEI OC holds joint events with the Orange County Branch during branch general meetings.  The Orange County Branch and the SEI OC work together to provide continuing educations events that are relevant SEI members. We hope you will come out and participate in our institute and work with us to build a strong organization.

Balance is the Key to Long-Term Happiness and Success

By Jeff Braun, P.E. Balance is the key to long-term happiness and success. The balance that immediately comes to most adults minds is the work-life balance. While this is important, it is not the balance I’m addressing in this message.  We all recognize the drive and hunger in our most successful role models and peers. They appear to never be satisfied with their current state, always looking for opportunities to learn more skills, become more efficient, and design and construct amazing projects to improve our built environment. We may hold these successful and motivated engineers in high regard for advancing our profession, but we must also take time to recognize our own achievements.

Much of the preparation comes in the form of infrastructure that must be constructed or reconstructed. And prior to that (or at least concurrently) – it must be designed by the A/E industry. A good amount of that work will land on the laps of civil engineers.

Chad Harden and The Art of Engineering Podcast

By Chad Harden, P.E. As chair of the local SEI chapter, I was invited to share my insights on a passion of mine – podcasting.  As I begin each podcast, let me say, “Welcome to The Art of Engineering podcast – I am your host, Chad Harden, chair of the SEI Orange County Chapter of ASCE and structural engineer with Michael Baker International.” The public sees the end result of a public improvement, and our clients see the thousands of plan sheets they have paid for. Each of these is a respected medium of art - such as the “structural art” of buildings and bridges, and the obvious line on paper can be respected. But, what about our daily sketches and communication, where we work so hard to communicate ideas across disciplines and experience? Keep reading to hear more about the Art of Engineering!
