About EMI

EMI is a new Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers dedicated to serving the engineering community through the development and application of engineering mechanics. EMI has fourteen technical committees addressing a variety of advanced engineering mechanics topics. EMI is responsible for the highly regarded Journal of Engineering Mechanics. ASCE members may select EMI as their Institute. It is also possible to join EMI as an EMI-only member.

The mission of the Institute is to serve the engineering community through the development and application of engineering mechanics by anticipating and adapting to new challenges that will face tomorrow’s engineers and by creating an environment that facilitates professional growth to ensure that these future challenges will be met. The Institute seeks to establish a presence at the forefront of new thrusts of mechanics by promoting the most innovative developments in the field, regardless of the discipline of the ultimate user. The Institute also seeks to provide a home not only for those involved in the traditional disciplines, but also for those involved with emerging areas of mechanics. Additionally, the Institute seeks to promote the interdependence of engineering mechanics and other disciplines by providing an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practicing engineers, industry representatives, citizen groups, public officials and others.
