The annual Fall Forum is designed to promote structural engineering with a non-technical approach. Subjects presented are designed to appeal to a wide audience, from engineers and architects to students and the general public.
SEFW is pleased to announce details for its 13th Fall Forum, to be held on November 16, 2023 at Benaroya Hall. Check back for more details!
Past Forums have highlighted iconic Seattle landmarks, the Burj Khalifa (the reigning tallest building in the world), wooden skyscrapers, an international bridge-building non-profit, the World Trade Center complex, and many more! Browse through our Forum reports to learn more:
Videos / FilmWorks Initiative
SEFW maintains an extensive Video Library housed on Vimeo. We have many of our past Fall Forums as well as other structural engineering lectures.
Additionally, in 2012, SEFW produced a 43-minute documentary about the structural engineering of the 1962 Seattle World's Fair, which was a huge success.
SEFW has held a FilmWorks competition for amateur filmmakers to create two-minute movies about structural engineering.
SEFW supports SEAW's Structural Engineers Hall of Fame which profiles distinguished local structural engineers who have shaped the profession throughout Washington and the world. Part of this effort includes honoring the legacy of engineers who have passed away, showcasing them and directing donations accepted in their names.
