Structural engineering is concerned with the analysis and design of civil engineering structures with an emphasis on buildings, bridges, stadiums, dams, and foundations. Particular emphasis is given to the design of these structures to resist earthquake and wind loads.
The program is designed to meet the needs of students who are interested in continuing to advanced graduate studies or who plan to go into engineering practice and consulting. Its basic aim is the preparation of flexible and innovative graduates who can address the novel problems of modern engineering. Students in this program have the chance to directly interact with some of the best design and consulting companies in structural engineering.
Structural engineering track requirements provide a foundation in civil and environmental engineering as well as emphasize engineering design of buildings and bridges.
The Program Electives should form a coherent sequence of courses in the student’s area of interest.
This track is accredited by ABET
under the civil engineering program requirements.
