Structural Engineering

Course Details :

Structural engineering is a branch of Civil Engineering which deals with the structural integrity and strength of a building or structure. It involves the application of the laws of physics, mathematics and empirical knowledge to safely design the load bearing elements of man made structures providing a large and detailed body of knowledge that can accurately predict the performance of different shapes and materials used in structures to resist loads and stresses on structures. This specific stream of engineering configures the technical knowledge of different construction materials n various shapes and geometries and design structures that can withstand the pressures and stresses of their environment such as gravity loads, storms and earthquakes. This course contributes a lot in building the economy of a country. At the beginning of construction projects in collaboration with structural engineers, architects, owners and construction managers, architects decide on the effectiveness, feasibility and cost-effectiveness of concepts. As the project progressed to the design stage, structural engineers produced the first set of executive design documents.
