Education & Research Council

Encouraging the growth of the steel industry through education and research

The CISC Education and Research Council (ERC) was created in October 2014 to oversee and strengthen the combined education and research efforts of the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC) and the Steel Structures Education Foundation (SSEF).

The ERC consists of the former SSEF Board of Governors and other individuals who are equally dedicated to furthering education and research activities in steel construction. In addition, a fund was created so that past and future corporate contributions can be made directly to education and research activities related to steel construction.

It is this fund that makes it possible to develop and support programs like the Educators Forum, the G.J. Jackson Fellowship, the architecture design competition, lectures and scholarships, the student steel bridge competitions, short course development and the Research Grant program.
