About course

Structural Engineering is a specialization of Civil Engineering but it can be studied as a separate discipline as well. It deals with the analysis and design of structures such as buildings, bridges, towers, flyovers, tunnels, off shore structures like oil and gas fields in the sea, aerostructure and other structures that support or resists load.  The main task of the structural engineers is to design buildings and non building structures or machinery, medical equipments, vehicles etc. Structural engineering is based on laws of physics and empirical knowledge of the structural properties of different materials and geometries. Structural engineers design considering the strength, stiffness, and stability of the structure. Structural engineering design utilizes a number of simple structural elements to build complex structural systems.
