WHAT IS A STRUCTURAL ENGINEER?
 
Structural Engineers are licensed professionals who use their skills and training in the sciences and mathematics to improve the quality of life of our clients.  Structural Engineers are specifically trained in those areas involving buildings or structures.  As Structural Engineers, we are involved in the design of new buildings and the evaluation of existing structures.
 
What are the requirements to be a licensed professional structural engineer?
 
The requirements can vary by state.  In the states where we are licensed, a licensed, professional, structural engineer must complete a four year, Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering from an accredited university.  During the senior year, an eight hour, Fundamentals of Engineering, exam is taken, testing the basics of engineering knowledge.  Upon passing the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and graduating, the candidate begins a four year intern training program in a particular division of Civil Engineering - in our case, Structural Engineering.  Following the successful development of the candidate through the intern program, a second eight hour exam is taken, testing design skills and ethics.  With a passing grade, a trainee is granted a license in the state of residence and allowed to add “PE” to the end of their name, indicating that their are licensed professional engineers. With the license from the State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors, the Professional Engineer is allowed to practice engineering in the state, providing design and consultation services for the public.

"Structural engineering is the science and art of designing and making, with economy and elegance, buildings, bridges, frameworks and other similar structures so that they can safely resist the forces to which they may be subjected."
