Our ideas and plans become real
Structural engineers enjoy the success and sense of achievement that come with finishing a project we have been working on. These projects can range from, skyscrapers, bridges or houses. The skills possessed by a structural engineer are vital during the design stage of any plan in order to bring it to life. We are involved in creating beautiful structures, useful structures and even record-breaking structures. The work you do as an engineer is incredibly gratifying at the end.
Engineers work is supposed to last a very long time. We design buildings that should last for over 50 years. We like to plan so that our structures can be used and enjoyed by thousands of people on a daily basis. We also love to change an old building to make it feel brand new again! We can renovate and construct the buildings that were built decades ago to make them stand out.
Structural engineers use lots of different skills. From basic physics, mathematical tools, the latest technology and overall, we use communication all the time! We meet many groups of people in our job, and we need to work collaboratively with them to make sure we are successful in completing projects on time. Structural engineers are the problem solvers in any design team, developing solutions to the challenges construction projects throw at us.
A safer world
Structural engineers always ensure that every building we design is secure to use. We also help the society notice the most significant problems such as climate change or even disaster relief. We ensure that buildings are built to stay up during earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters, and we carry out comprehensive research for each project to reduce the risk of anything adverse occurring. We also minimise the impact construction has on our planet and we work to make the best use of the resources we have.
Structural engineering is not an easy profession, but it is a gratifying job. We are very much respected by other construction professionals as they value our skills. The skills we possess are instrumental in every project we take on, in order to overcome challenges and to ensure the safety of every building.
There are many reasons why you should become a structural engineer and why it is such a rewarding job.
