Overview

Bridges, buildings, skyscrapers, dams, and towers are engineering feats that improve our quality of life. New materials and technologies allow us to design exciting structures to resist both natural and man-made hazards.

Global seismic events and other natural disasters demonstrate that there is still much to learn to withstand these extreme forces. UC staff are world leaders in the design and assessment of steel, concrete, and timber buildings and bridges. We consult with mana whenua in developing design solutions that celebrate our unique history and cultural narratives in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Structural Engineering is a cross-disciplinary field, where you apply mathematics, statistics, science, and fundamental civil engineering concepts to structural engineering systems and design problems.

Students study towards the Structural Engineering minor alongside Civil Engineering in the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours.
