Welcome to the Structural Engineers Association of Wisconsin (SEAWI). SEAWI was formed in 2009 to enhance the profession of structural engineering in the state of Wisconsin. SEAWI’s goal is to join together all Wisconsin structural engineers and to address common concerns of the profession.

Continuing Improvement

SEAWI is run by a group of structural engineers who volunteer their time to bring their colleagues great events and valuable resources which we are always trying to add to and improve. We welcome all suggestions: email us at [email protected] if you have any. We are also always looking for more individuals to broaden our volunteer base - please reach out to our general email or any of our Directors or Committee Chairs if you are interested in getting involved.

2019 MSOE Stem Expo (November 9, 2019)

The STEM Expo was held on Saturday, November 9th, 2019 at the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE). Activities were geared for ages 6-18 and included college representatives and volunteers from area college programs as well as STEM professionals.

The 2019 STEM Expo had different companies and organizations from Milwaukee and surrounding areas as sponsors for exploration stations. These stations had an activity or demonstration of various Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) related themes. This event was designed to promote STEM fields to the next generation in a fun and thought provoking way.

SEA-WI provided a shake table at the event, which allowed students to build and test their Lego / Duplo towers during an extreme seismic event.  Hundreds of kids participated, planting many seeds for future SE’s.
