Why Attend

The practice of forensic engineering is most successful when issues are addressed through collaboration among disciplines. When owners, insurance professionals, attorneys, scientists, architects, engineers and other design professionals work together to understand the issues, they can find answers and present sound arguments supporting their opinions to resolve disputes. Frequently, engineers can benefit from the experience of engineers from other disciplines, materials scientists, architects, and financial, loss, and scheduling experts.
