Career Prospects

Structural engineers are responsible for designing structures which will be physically able to withstand specific pressures and forces.

Structural engineers arguably perform one of the most important roles in the construction industry. Without the skills and technical knowledge of structural engineers, the buildings which we inhabit and spend our time in on a daily basis could potentially cause us serious injury or even death. Structural engineers are responsible for designing structures which will be able to withstand pressures.

During the lifetime of a typical building, various stresses and strains will test its physical composition and structural engineers will ensure that the structure is strong and flexible enough to remain safe and sturdy. Without the input of a structural engineer, buildings may twist, bend, or vibrate in ways that cause both structural damage and put human lives at risk. It is also the responsibility of a structural engineer to make sure that older buildings (which may not have been built to current regulations) can withstand forces in a safe fashion.

Structural engineers will monitor the progress of an architectural project from its initial stages to its completion. They usually create initial design models, using in-depth mathematical and scientific knowledge, and, once construction has started, they monitor the work and meet with contractors to ensure that the designs are being followed closely. It perhaps comes as no surprise that the majority of structural engineers are male. However, there are certain associations that are actively encouraging women to apply for positions within the construction industry.

CareerProspects

A career as a Highway Engineer is very rewarding in a number of ways. You will be involved in many different projects from minor proposals right the way through to complex high profile major developments which may be of national or regional importance. One particularly rewarding aspect is seeing the development you have worked on being built and operating successfully for years to come.

You will meet a variety of different people from clients who may be professional developers, specialist service providers such as Health Care Trusts and members of the public. You will often be part of a multi disciplinary team and will meet with architects, planners, air quality and noise consultants, structural engineers and quantity surveyors to name but a few. You will engage with Local Planning and Highway Authorities and third parties such as elected officials and local residents during the planning process.
