Structural engineers must constantly evolve to anticipate the materials, environments, and technologies that will shape our future buildings.
They use innovative materials and manufacturing methods to design efficient, adaptable, and sustainable building infrastructure.
Because this infrastructure must be resilient in the face of a changing environment, structural engineers must also understand the future hazards and risks likely to arise – whether from cyclones, earthquakes or other natural disasters.
Develop the capacity to create innovative solutions to structural engineering challenges using a variety of materials including steel, timber and concrete, and solve advanced design problems.
You'll learn how to apply digital design and construction technologies and build your understanding of the role of wind loading, fire safety and sustainable design.
To study this major, you'll have to choose an engineering specialisation first. The structural engineering major is available to study within the civil engineering specialisation.
