The New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering (NZSEE) was formed in April 1968, and has made a significant impact on attitudes and practices for earthquake engineering through study projects, seminars, conferences, and publication of The Bulletin.

What the society does

The society aims to gather, shape and apply knowledge to reduce the impact of earthquakes on our communities by:

  • fostering the advancement of the science and practice of earthquake engineering across all disciplines.
  • promoting co-operation among scientists, engineers and other professionals in the broad field of earthquake engineering through sharing knowledge, ideas, results of research and practical experience.

The New Zealand for Earthquake Engineering Inc (NZSEE) is a collaborating technical society.
