Structural engineering is one of the very important fields that the state needs. The lives of the people are at stake when a building's structural design is weak or a vehicle malfunction while on the road.
It deals with the analysis and design of structures that support or resist loads like in the construction of buildings, bridges, towers, and even in machinery, medical equipment, vehicles, and anything where its functionality and safety depend on the structural design.

Structural engineering services involving the calculations required in selecting materials and ensure that the structural elements will complement the entire system. In a building, they ensure that the foundations, walls, columns, slabs, roof trusses, and connectors fit whatever the composition of the elements used; whether they are wood, steel, aluminum, concrete, or composite. Otherwise, the design will fail and possibly the risk of collapse of the entire infrastructure. Aside from these services, here are other services that provide structural engineering:
- Design of water tanks, seawalls, doors, windows, fences, signs, lampposts.
- Steel design for posts, beams and connections
- Wind calculation
- Roof calculation improved.
- Aluminium design
- Mechanical architectures such as boilers and pressure vessels, Coachworks and trains, cranes, elevators, escalators, ships and hull,
- Aerospace design
Even if the numbers of structural design engineers are increasing, it is still very crucial to just hire one without considering his/her background and the firm that he belongs to. A structural design engineer needs to gain exquisite knowledge in different aspects of engineering in order to meet the goal of different types of projects.
