Who We Are
Cornell Seismic Design is an undergraduate project team that designs, builds, and tests a scaled multi-story balsa wood tower for an international undergraduate competition held every spring at the annual meeting hosted by the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI). Our team offers a great opportunity for students interested in all engineering disciplines. Students have ample opportunities to experience hands-on construction, learn several different applicable softwares, use a laser cutter, acquire leadership positions, and above all make a substantial impact on the final building!
