About

The Department of Structural Engineering at the University of California, San Diego offers a unique engineering program leading to a Bachelor's of Science (B.S.) degree in Structural Engineering.  The B.S. in Structural Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET

Overview

About this Degree

Structural Engineering is concerned with the design and analysis of civil, mechanical, aerospace, marine, naval, and offshore structures. Examples include bridges, dams, buildings, aircraft, spacecraft, ships, oil platforms, automobiles, and other transportation vehicles. 

This field at the University of California, San Diego requires a thorough knowledge of the behavior of solids (concrete, soils, rock, metals, plastics, and composite materials), fluid mechanics as it relates to structural loads, dynamics as it relates to structural response, mathematics for the generation of theoretical structural models and numerical analysis, and computer science for simulation purposes associated with computer-aided design, response analyses, and data acquisition. 

Basic understanding of materials behavior and structural performance is enhanced by laboratory courses involving static and dynamic stress failure tests of structural models, and response of structural systems.  

Programme Structure

Undergraduate students can specialize in one of the following four focus sequences:

  • civil structures
