EERI, the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, is a global non-profit organization dedicated to reducing earth risk. Tools EERI uses to accomplish this task is supporting the advancement of the science and practice of earthquake engineering, improving the understanding of earthquake impacts, and advocating comprehensive and realistic measures for reducing earthquake effects.
Our student chapter here at Oregon State has the same goal, but with a focus on the application of this mission to our community. Our hope is to enrich the educational experience for students, both at the university level and K through 12, interested in earthquake engineering by providing opportunities for them to grow and achieve. This is accomplished through any number of our outreach programs - speaker meetings, software training, engineering competitions, post-disaster reconnaissance training - all of which you can become apart of.
