The Institution of Structural Engineers has learning resources to find out more about structural engineering for structures enthusiasts, education professionals and students. There's something for everyone here and lots of routes into the profession. You don't need to go via the traditional route. If you can work hard and want to do it, the Institution will nurture your abilities and there are many, many careers available. If this is something you'd be interested in please get in touch. I love to encourage others into the profession.
