The objectives of the competition are to:

  • Promote the study of earthquake engineering among undergraduate students.
  • Provide civil engineering undergraduate students with an opportunity to work on a hands-on project designing and constructing a cost-effective frame building to resist seismic loading.
  • Promote EERI activities among civil engineering students as well as the general public, and to encourage international participation in these activities.
