Dear D. Jain,
Your idea of startng a SEFI organised national test for encouraging students to select/stick to structural engineering is excellent. There used to be a contest organised by National Design and Research Forum of Institution of Engineers, which was popular. I do not know if that is still on. May be this national test, if popularised well, will enthuse the students.

I have observed that students take electives 'other than' stuctures due to various misconceptions and also to score higher marks. After finishing engineering, they find that it would have been wiser to have taken structural engineering subjects. Even those who take up structures do not study with interest and hence would  graduate with not enough 'in-depth' knowledge.

Is it possible to form groups of SEFIans in various towns (successful practicing engineers) who could visit various leading colleges and give an informative as well as 'pep' talk? Why I am bringing this proposal is that for this project we need 'well meaning' structural engineering friends and not much of 'funding'. As for the students, 'seeing is believing'. If we can impress upon them personally that structural engineering is a worthy avenue to persue, then we can see to it that they study this subject with interest.

Dr Kalgal, there's no doubt about structural engineering being a worthy one
but alas we cant make it a wealthy avenue for them to pursue!Children these
days are in sure hurry to reach the top slot with all the good perks which r
offered so easily to other engg grads esp IT ,management and marketing.They
would go to any length to maintain a safe distance from Structural engineers
and str engineering and even take IAS to get away!More Moolah is needed to
attract them back into this game which is incidentally beginning to be hot
due to paucity of good structural engineers!
