Structural Engineering

  • As a structural engineer, you will design structures that are safe, even during natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, blizzards, and floods.
  • You will use materials like steel, concrete, aluminum, timber, and plastic, as well as new materials to create designs for different structures.
  • You will make sure that plans for stadiums, skyscrapers, bridges, amusement park rides, and office buildings are being followed. You will often be on the construction site inspecting the work.
