Structural Engineering is the science and art of designing civil engineering facilities so that they can safely resist the forces to which they may be subjected. All structures from bridges to buildings, harbours to airports, must be able to meet these requirements. Structural Engineers aim to design these structures with safety, economy and elegance.

 

Structural engineering is a branch of civil engineering that focuses on house construction.

The course is taught primarily through lectures, practicals and tutorials. Also, a significant emphasis is placed on project and experimental work with site visits and field trips making up an integral part of the programme.
