Ethical Implication: Engineering as a Profession

Most engineers assume that their job, as an engineer, means that they are part of a profession - the profession of engineering. But how do others view us? Join us for a presentation that explores the definition of a profession, delves into what others think about the job of engineering, and discusses the related ethical implications. Attendees will be challenged to reflect on critical questions about our industry, including: How should we define the profession of engineering? Is licensure still necessary and relevant? What should our values as a profession be? And, what does the future hold for engineering as a profession? Be sure to join SEAOSC for an important and thought provoking discussion on what it means to be a professional engineer.

In the August newsletter I presented the Vision for SEAOSC;  an Association that is relevant, active, modern and embracing of change.  An Association that strongly advocates for our profession, serves the needs of our members and communities, and advances the science of Earthquake Design. I mentioned then that I would share how the different components of the vision align.  The core mission for SEAOSC has traditionally been advancement of Earthquake Engineering as well as, providing educational opportunities for our members.  However in recent years the mission of advocating for our profession has also taken a front and center role with the Association.  As a result the Communication-Image and the newly formed Legislative Committees have come to existence and we have brought on an outreach coordinator, Stratiscope, as a partner.  As you know, in recent years there has also been a growing interest on the part of our communities for more resilient structures and even a developing expectation of " Functional Recovery" - in essence an expectation of continued occupancy in the event of a catastrophic earthquake.  The legislative bill AB1857, is a manifestation of this expectation, it passed both the House of the Representatives and the Senate although ultimately was vetoed by Governor Brown.  I am confident that we have not seen the last of such a bill and will see a bill to this effect enacted in the near future.  A discussion of the expected performance of structures on the part of the communities is one that has been long overdue between us and the communities we serve.  We need to continue to collectively work with our communities to assist them in realizing their expectation in achieving the degree of residency they desire for buildings in an catastrophic event.  This forms another mission for the Association. 
On the surface these different missions seem to be scattered and unrelated, however there is much synergy between them.  I tend to view them as one synchronized overarching mission as follows;  we help our communities realize the desired performance objective for the structures in the event of a catastrophic earthquake, this will highlight our unique expertise as Earthquake Engineers, which speaks to our advocacy mission. In the process we will also advance the science of earthquake design by developing solutions to achieve the desired performance for the structures.  No matter what your interests are, whether technically oriented, communicational minded, or interested in advocacy and policy development there is a role for you in this overarching mission.  So please get involved and help your association and communities achieve their goals.

Committee Updates / Building Codes & Standards 
Updates and reminders from the Building Codes and Standards Committee
Our members may recall a June article in this Newsletter, outlining the 2021 IBC development process. So where are we now? Well, just about now, in November, proposed changes to the non-structural provisions (mechanical, electrical & other volumes of IBC) go through the 'Online Governmental Consensus Vote', to be followed by validation, i.e. the changes will be final and published on the ICC website sometime in January 2019. While this closes the cycle for them, the ones we are interested in (mostly), the so-called 'Group B Codes', i.e. IBC-Structural, IEBC, IECC-C. IECC-R/IRC-E, IRC-B are open to receive the on-line change proposals up to January 7, 2019. There is still time, therefore, to submit proposals to structural provisions, and we at the BCS Committee are ready to receive them from any interested member, and discuss them in our meetings, and to make them part of the SEAOSC official position, if our committee has a favorable position on them.(email to or/and Following that, there will be several other steps, hearings, etc. (see June Newsletter) during 2019, with a final web posting of successful changes in January 2020.
We would also like to inform the readers that the period for public comments for changes to the CBC ended on October 29. The Commission meeting for adoption and approval will be upcoming December/January, and the adopted changes will be published as part of the CBC, July 2019, (to be enforced by DSA, OSHPD, etc. starting January 2020).

For information regarding the CBC code adoption timelines, errata and supplements in pdf format, see the website.

The Structural Engineers Association of Southern California (SEAOSC) offers a free Member Services Search service that is intended to assist the public in finding Structural Engineers (SE's) and Professional Engineers (PE's) claiming specialization in various areas of structural engineering. SEAOSC members pay a fee to advertise their "For Hire" design services on this service.   

SEAOSC has a helpful brochure to help you understand structural engineering and structural engineers entitled "What you need to know about Structural Engineering. It may be downloaded from our website at:

An important first step is to determine the size and scope of your project. You may wish to consult an architect or contractor first to discuss cost, feasibility and design coordination.   

To help compile a list of structural engineer prospects. 
  • Search the SEAOSC online Member Services Search for firms.
  • Ask your friends and contractors for recommendations.
  • Refer to your local telephone directory (check in the white pages, the "Yellow Pages," or in large metropolitan areas, the "Business Yellow Pages"), or
  • Contact professional engineering and professional land surveying societies, such as SEAOSC, SEAONC, SEAOSD, SEAOCC, and SEAOC.   

Confirm the engineer's State Registration.

Select two or more engineering firms and ask for references from previous jobs similar to yours. Verify their expertise in your type of project and their ability to complete projects on time and on budget.   


Request that an engineer visit the project site in order to submit a written proposal, including the objectives, anticipated time schedule and engineer's compensation. While some engineers do not charge for a preliminary visit, many do.
