Webcast Seminar Series

 "....its purpose is to widen accessibility to timely, technical presentations by students, researchers, visitors and affiliates of the Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering Research."

 

The web cast seminar was established in January 2001 and is sponsored as part of MCEER’s Networking and Education Programs.  

This seminar series is jointly organized by the MCEER SLC, the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering at the University of Buffalo (CSEE), and the EERI Student Chapter at the University of Buffalo (UB-EERI).

Featuring lectures by leading experts on earthquake engineering, the webcasts are presented live from http://civil.eng.buffalo.edu/webcast/, which provides information on upcoming webcasts.  

Each seminar is also archived for future viewing and to provide access to past seminars in this link.
