Structural Engineering Minor

Structural engineering is traditionally viewed as a branch of civil engineering dealing with the analysis and design of structures  to support or resist loads. The curriculum is designed to provide students with a foundation to pursue graduate studies or a career in structural engineering and an understanding of the theory, behavior, and design of individual structural elements and structural systems.

Please contact Dr. Ryan Overton in Reiners Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering if you are interested in this program.
