Important Announcement for Structural Engineers in Romania: 32nd AICPS National Conference to be Held June 4-7

Introduction to Structural Engineering in Romania

Structural engineering plays a crucial role in the development and safety of buildings and infrastructure in Romania. With its diverse landscapes and seismic activity, the country demands highly skilled professionals who can design resilient structures. The field has seen significant advancements over the years, integrating modern technology and innovative practices to enhance structural integrity and sustainability. The profession has grown from basic construction techniques to the incorporation of sophisticated software and materials that meet international standards.


Key Organizations for Structural Engineers in Romania

Several key organizations support and guide structural engineers in Romania, providing resources, networking opportunities, and professional development.

Association of Structural Design Engineers (AICPS): Founded 33 years ago, AICPS is a cornerstone of the Romanian structural engineering community. It fosters a sense of unity among professionals from various generations, promoting values such as vision, perseverance, community, integrity, ethics, and leadership.

Romanian Order of Architects (Iași Territorial Branch): This organization plays a critical role in integrating architectural design with structural engineering, ensuring that buildings are not only aesthetically pleasing but also structurally sound.

Municipal Administration for the Consolidation of Buildings with Seismic Risk: Given Romania’s seismic activity, this administration focuses on the reinforcement and consolidation of buildings, making them more resistant to earthquakes.

Federation of Construction Companies’ Employers: This federation supports construction companies, advocating for better working conditions, fair regulations, and advancements in construction technologies.

Romanian Association of Installation Engineers: This association emphasizes the importance of proper installation techniques and systems within structural engineering projects, ensuring safety and efficiency.

Romanian Society of Geotechnics and Foundations: Specializing in the study of soil and foundations, this society provides essential insights and guidelines for building stable and secure structures.


The 32nd AICPS National Conference: A Key Event

The upcoming 32nd AICPS National Conference, scheduled for June 5-7, 2024, at Hotel Internațional Iași, is a significant event for structural engineers in Romania. As Prota Software, we are excited to participate and showcase ProtaStructure, highlighting how it can benefit your structural engineering projects.
