Structural engineers oversee the completion of construction projects and ensure structures are durable and safe.
Structural engineers design buildings, bridges, and other types of structures. They build 2D and 3D models using computer-aided design technology (e.g. AutoCAD). They measure loads and presses to secure structural soundness. Structural engineer duties also include collaborating with contractors and guiding construction workers onsite.
Structural engineers usually hold a degree in Structural Engineering or similar field. They have experience using computer-aided design software, such as AutoCAD. This role requires great analytical and mathematical skills to conduct accurate calculations. Budgeting and project management are also important structural engineering skills.
When you craft your own structural engineer job description, make sure to mention these qualifications and skills as requirements.
We are looking for a structural engineer to oversee our construction projects. You’ll ensure that structures are safe and strong.

To succeed in this role, you should have hands-on experience using several construction methods and materials and advanced knowledge of AutoCAD. Project management and analytical skills are also very important.
