Structural Engineering

Structural Engineering (SE75)

The Department of Structural Engineering at the University of California, San Diego offers a unique program that crosses different engineering disciplines, such as civil, geotechnical, mechanical, aerospace, biological, and marine/offshore engineering, with a focus on structural design and analysis, structural materials, computational mechanics, and solid mechanics. This broad-based cross-disciplinary structural engineering approach allows not only diversity in the selection of graduate courses but also a diversity of employment opportunities across the engineering spectrum.
