Structural Engineering

  • Structural Engineering



Structural Engineering explores how buildings and other structures endure disasters, like earthquakes, fires, and storms.

With big issues like climate change, structural engineers need to create resilient infrastructure and specialised solutions, whilst juggling the demands of aesthetics, environment, cost, and materials.
