About Structural Engineering

Structural engineering is concerned with the research, planning, design, construction, inspection, monitoring, maintenance, rehabilitation and demolition of permanent and temporary structures, as well as structural systems and their components. It also considers the technical, economic, environmental, aesthetic and social aspects of structures.

Structures can include buildings, bridges, in-ground structures, footings, frameworks and space frames, including those for motor vehicles, public artworks, space vehicles, ships, airplanes, cranes, concert staging and entertainment structures. They can be composed of any structural material (the most common being concrete, structural steel, timber, aluminum and glass) including composites such as carbon fibre and novel materials.

Structural engineering is a creative profession that makes a significant contribution to infrastructure and industry as well as residential and recreational developments.
