The Indian Association of Structural Engineers, identified as IAStructE, was conceptualized and constituted in the year 2002 by a group of senior professional Structural Engineers from all regions of the country. It was registered under the Societies Registration Act on 20th December 2002. IAStructE has completed more than 8 years of eventful progress in enhancing its professional status as well as credibility in the country.

IAStructE is a national body of structural engineers established with the objective to cater to the overall professional needs of structural engineers in India.

IAStructE strives to make available to the Government, Public Sector and Private Sector - a credible source of well qualified and experienced Structural Engineers. A nationwide database of Structural Engineers has been compiled and is being constantly updated.

IAStructE is a body of professional Structural Engineers with which Government and other concerned authorities can have meaningful & fruitful dialogue towards safety & stability of structures and mitigation of the consequences arising out of natural disasters.

IAStructE Governing Council comprises leading Structural Engineers from all over India. The Governing Council meets periodically to take decisions on policy matter and guide the activities of the Association. Implementation and control is through various committees.

IAStructE has signed an MoU with IStructE (Institution of Structural Engineers) of UK for exchange of information and promotion of Structural Engineering profession. Similar MoU has been signed with the Association of Structural Engineers of the Philippines (ASEP).

IAStructE is expanding fast to include in its fold structural engineers from all over India. The membership strength as on 01 August 2011 stands at 722. These comprise, Honorary Fellows, Fellows, Members, Associate Members and Student Members.

A prominent thrust area of IAStructE is to ensure that its members have the requisite technical knowledge and experience, updated on a continuing basis, to render professional service of high caliber to the society. A programme of continuing education of practicing structural engineers in the areas of design and practice of structural engineering has been formulated and is being implemented. Under this programme the events organized so far are:
