Civil Engineering primarily deals with the planning, design, construction, and operation of infrastructural facilities essential to modern life, ranging from transit systems to offshore structures to space satellites. Major disciplines within Civil Engineering that are closely interrelated are structural, environmental, geotechnical, water resources, transportation, construction and urban planning.
The complexity of modern structures often requires a great deal of creativity from the engineer in order to ensure the structures support and resist the loads they are subjected to. The role of a Structural Engineer demands a significant understanding of both static and dynamic loading and the structures that are available to resist them. Presently, structural engineers need to combine traditional Structural Engineering expertise with an understanding of a wide range of issues related to the design of zero carbon buildings.
At present numerous computer-aided design tools are available for the design and analysis of structures as the structures have intricate shapes, and sizes and are subjected to complex loading patterns. It is essential that the present-day structural engineers develop expertise in the use of these tools as they speed up the design and optimisation process.
