University Programs

Welcome Faculty and Students!

Thank you for visiting the AISC University Programs homepage. Our programs are intended to assist in the development of future professionals who are knowledgeable in structural steel behavior and design, and to foster career development of faculty members through support of teaching, research and service.

Within this area of the AISC website, you will find important information on our many benefits and opportunities available to students and steel educators. Learn more about our student competitions, AISC Student Manual Discount program, helpful teaching aids, free student and educator AISC memberships, scholarships and much more, all by following the links on either side of this note. Watch the recording of our webinar, "Resources for Steel Educators: Tips and Treasures" to learn about the growing array of faculty resources that AISC provides.

We invite you to bookmark this page and check back frequently as new updates will be posted in our Announcements section below.

We wish you great success!
