Structural Engineering aims at practical and research activities, besides offering testing and consultancy services to the community. To produce structural engineers who integrate and build on the Program's core curricular concepts in the pursuit of professional leadership, teamwork, life-long learning, and career advancement.



Natural forces such as wind, waves and earthquakes and their effects all need to be taken into account when a structure is designed and built. Certain stresses caused by the modern environment, such as the traffic of both cars and people, also need to be considered. A structural engineer ensures that structures are built in such a way that they stand up to these forces. Innovative solutions to these problems are researched, developed and tested by structural engineers. This degree is for students who wish to follow a career in structural engineering. While it does not prevent you from working in other areas of civil engineering, it specifically focuses on the design of structures such as bridges and buildings.
