The Wood Education Institute (WEI) is a national community of educators, design practitioners and forest products industry professionals who are interested in the promotion of wood in structural applications. The mission of WEI is to “serve as a vehicle for the development, dissemination and maintenance of educational materials for use by universities nationwide for undergraduate, graduate, continuing education and instructor-development programs.”

The Institute has recently produced an online  program in wood engineering and design to aid in continuing education and university curricula nationwide. “The course is intended for practicing professionals who did not have a timber design course in their undergraduate program or would like to refresh and update their knowledge. This course allows industry practitioners to learn (or relearn) the fundamentals of designing with wood in a structured self‐paced environment.”
