It's a great time for the SFC scheme, with SCNZ’s recent announcement that they’ll be offering 15 training scholarships in their commitment to support the steel construction industry in becoming certified - access to HERA’s AS/NZS 2214 Welding Supervisor course has never been more achievable!
Your steel and composite bridge could be on the cover of the latest AS/NZS bridge standard coming out soon. Send in your photos today!
We're proud to continue our efforts to drive research and industry development through our Heavy Engineering Educational Research Foundation scholarships - recently supporting one of its recipients Shoulong Dong who last week presented his works at the University of Auckland on an AGGAT program deliverable, the Expert Design Tool (EDT).
Today we remember February 22, 2011 - and reconfirm our commitment to continue to drive research that helps our communities remain resilient and safe in the face of future seismic events.
