The mission of the Young Engineers Programme (YEP) started in 2002, is to actively support and develop the objectives of the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) by focusing on issues relevant to young engineers. This includes increasing the participation of Young Members within the Association, facilitating their international networking as well as recruiting new IABSE members.
IABSE wishes to provide a platform within IABSE for the exchange of information to Young Members, to encourage promising young researchers and practitioners to share their experience and co-operate with other international or national structural engineering associations with similar programmes for young engineers. The Young Engineers Programme is open to all IABSE members 35 years of age or younger. However, all other interested and motivated IABSE members are also welcome to participate in and contribute to the activities of the YEP.
