Structural Engineering is the analysis and design of structures that support or resist loads. Structural Engineering is generally considered a specialty of civil engineering but it can also be studied on its own. By Definition
Civil Engineering Structures Bridges Dams Earthworks Foundations Offshore structures Pipelines Power stations Railways Retaining structures and walls Roads Tunnels Waterways Water and wastewater infrastructure
Common Structural Materials Iron Concrete Aluminum Alloy Masonry Timber Composites
Structural Elements Columns Beams Plates Arches Shells Catenaries

Structural Engineering Theory Based on a detailed knowledge of loads, physics and materials in order to be able to predict how structures resist and support self- weight and loads. Structural Engineer must also have a detailed knowledge of mathematics and also of relevant empirical and theoretical design codes.
