Structural engineering focuses on analyzing and designing structures with the aim of making sure they withstand the external forces that they experience including gravity loads, earthquake, wind, snow, and hydrodynamic forces. Structural Engineers design buildings, bridges, dams, offshore oil platforms, jetties, industrial structures, power plants, communication towers, among others.
