The Czech Institution of Structural and Civil Engineers (CSSI ) is an organisation with a very long tradition. It was established more than 100 years ago in 1865.

The Head office of the Institution is in Prague. There is a network of 12 regional branches within the Czech Republic. Some technical and professional associations (for example: Concrete Association, Geotechnical Association) are members of the CSSI.

The number of individual members of CSSI is about 2,200 engineers. Membership is on a voluntary basis.

CSSI was first invited as an observer to ECCE in 1990 and attained full ECCE membership in Paris in 1997.

The Institution is also represented in ECCE (on the base of bilateral agreement) by the Czech Chamber of Certified Engineers and Technicians (CKAIT). The Chamber, being a self-governing organisation, was established by the Act of the Czech National Council No. 360/92 Coll. regarding Certified (Chartered) Architects and Certified (Chartered) Engineers and Technicians.

At present there are approximately 22,000 members of the Chamber (about 14,000 engineers and 8,000 technicians).

Both organisations co-operate at home and abroad.
