The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Rice University has an EERI student chapter! Please keep an eye on this site and let us know if you want to join and get involved.
Meetings will be scheduled as well as special EERI-RU seminars for which we will invite national and local professionals to speak on earthquake engineering issues.
Yes we are in HOUSTON so earthquakes may not have pre-eminance in our minds like hurricanes do, but we are in the UNITED STATES and a GLOBAL community…Natural disasters of all kinds need addressing by our burgeoning engineers. Thus we in the EERI-RU organization aspire to bring awareness to our community and provide outreach to young students in high-schools and middle schools.
