Structural engineering is a discipline that combines architecture, health and safety and environmental science to create safe and efficient structures. You will help to ensure that buildings and structures are able to withstand pressures and stresses they may endure through environmental conditions and general human use. As a structural engineer, you will work alongside architects, builders and other engineers to create a team.
During a Structural Engineering degree, you will cover the basics of engineering, as well as modules that are more specific to the discipline. Some examples of these modules are:
- Mathematics for Engineers
- Built and Natural Environment
- Hydraulics and Hydrology
- Environmental Engineering
- Transportation Engineering
