Structural engineering and its applications are extremely diverse. Structural engineers design things to be built and then offer their expertise during construction. Stuctures can include buildings, bridges, tunnels, towers etc. Some structural engineers might also be involved in the demolition or dismantling of a structure, either permanently or in order to repair it - such as keeping a historic building's facade. Structural engineers also inspect buildings, both during and after construction and oversee the use of the concrete, steel and timber of which they are made. They must also be aware of both obvious and less obvious uses for the structures and how these uses affect its integrity
Structural Engineers design drawings and specifications, perform calculations, review the work of other engineers, write reports and evaluations, and carry out construction site visits.
