As structural engineers, we design, create, solve problems, innovate and use everyday mathematics and science to shape the world. The beauty we conceive is reflected in structures that we use daily; from houses, multiplex, hotels, Indoor stadiums and hospitals, to bridges, oil rigs and space satellites.
We are involved at every stage of a structure’s realisation and play a key part in its design and construction. Working with architects, and other professionals, we create conceptual designs and ensure that the structure can be built and is stable and durable. We also undertake structural analysis to understand the effects of loads/stresses caused by gravity, the users of the structure, and cater to the widely varying climatic conditions and ground conditions around the world.
A career in structural engineering involves great team work, creative problem solving and practical skills such as sketching and drawing, and using computer models to create structures and specifications for our clients.
Structural engineers specialise in a range of fascinating areas including conservation, sustainability, seismic and humanitarian engineering. We also try to focus a lot on steel structures, keeping in mind the versatility and advantages of steel; such as its being environmental friendly, reusable, strong, durable, resistance to temperature and insect attacks, utility in fast construction and low maintenance.
