Emphasis in Structural Engineering

An emphasis in Structural Engineering provides students with specialized technical training and prepares them for practice as a structural engineer or to go on to graduate school in the field. Structural engineers design structural systems (buildings, bridges, towers, and others) capable of resisting imposed loads safely and without undue risk to society. In addition, these engineered structures must satisfy all required performance criteria in an efficient, cost-effective, functional, and aesthetic way. To accomplish this, structural engineers must possess a thorough understanding of the behavior of various structural materials and be able to analyze and design complex structural systems
