Structural engineering student looks at ways to preserve heritage buildings using different naterials


The Structural Engineering program, featuring the C.W. Carry Chair in Steel Structures, has earned an outstanding reputation for leadership in structural engineering, research and code development.

Structural engineers design buildings, bridges, towers, and structures of numerous proportions. Structural engineers determine the forces that elements of the structure must resist, select the materials and dimensions so that the structure will safely withstand those forces.
