Club Description

EERI/OSU is a student chapter of the national organization, EERI, which aims to reduce earthquake risk by (1) advancing the science and practice of earthquake engineering, (2) improving understanding of the impact of earthquakes on the physical, social, economic, political, and cultural environment, and (3) advocating comprehensive and realistic measures for reducing the harmful effects of earthquakes. We seek to achieve these goals here on campus by engaging and educating the OSU CCE student body through speaker meetings from guest lecturers. These guest lectures touch on a range of topics as EERI is a multi-disciplinary organization. From current earthquake engineering practices, seismology, how to build more resilient equable communities, and what we have learned from past disasters. Our club additionally seeks to engage and educate our community on ways to be more prepared. Through volunteering at local schools inspiring our youth to become great engineers and educating the Corvallis community on disaster preparedness. Another large portion of our club the Seismic Design Team. An undergraduate competition competed by universities all over the world to design and build balsa wood structures that meet given criteria, tested against several real ground motions via a shake table.
