SECB – Structural Engineering Certification Board

The Structural Engineering Certification Board was formed to identify those professional engineers with the additional education, experience, and skills that are particular to the practice of Structural Engineering. Structural Engineering is the science and art of designing and constructing, with efficiency and elegance, buildings, bridges, towers, tanks, frameworks and similar structures so they can safely resist the forces to which they may be subjected. By submitting to the certification process, an engineer can demonstrate the unique qualities necessary to be certified in the practice of Structural Engineering.

AISC – American Institute of Steel Construction

The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), headquartered in Chicago, is a not-for-profit technical institute and trade association established in 1921 to serve the structural steel design community and construction industry in the United States. AISC’s mission is to make structural steel the material of choice by being the leader in structural-steel-related technical and market-building activities, including: specification and code development, research, education, technical assistance, quality certification, standardization, and market development. AISC has a long tradition of service to the steel construction industry providing timely and reliable information.

ECP – The Engineers Club of Philadelphia

The Centennial Exposition of 1876 in Philadelphia drew engineers from around the world to view the technical advances of that century. It was apparent to engineers residing in Philadelphia that engineers did not know each other. Charles E. Billin invited twenty or so engineers to his home the following winter for refreshments. This started a series of gatherings at the homes of various engineers. The Club formally organized in December of 1877 and Professor L M. Haupt was its first President. The Club’s objective is to provide a forum for professionals of all fields in the greater Philadelphia area, to discuss and experience topics, events and places of current and historical interest, with an emphasis on engineering.

ICC – International Code Council

The International Code Council (ICC) was established in 1994 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing a single set of comprehensive and coordinated national model construction codes. The ICC is dedicated to building safety and fire prevention and develops the codes used to construct residential and commercial buildings, including homes and schools. Most U.S. cities, counties and states that adopt codes choose the International Codes developed by the ICC. .
