Structural Engineering is a division of Civil Engineering that specializes in the stability, strength, and creation of structures and buildings. They are also often involved in the design of machinery, medical equipment, and vehicles where structural integrity affects the functionality and safety of equipment.
Most structural engineers over time tend to take on a specialty, whether it’s boats, tunnels, bridges, buildings or something else and spend their time in offices where they spend their days creating drawings and reviewing specifications of other projects.
For those looking to get into this field, the standard structural engineer tends to have a background in Civil Engineering and in most states needs a professional Engineer’s license in order to conduct work for most companies.
