I am a graduate student in Mechanical engineering and I just found out that my intersts located on Structural Engineering. I did may bachelor degree in Saudi Arabia and I think it is time to change to Civil Engineering ( Structural Engineering)Could u please tell me what courses should I take in order to be successful in Structural Engineering.
I have already planned to take the following courses,
Finite element method
mechanical behavior of materials
Applied Stress analysis
design of bridges
advanced structural steel design
advanced reinforced concrete design
Do you think there are other courses I should learn from bachelor degree?
Is it necessary to start working with structural programs from now or I will lear while working?
Should I be profissional in AutoCad before I start working?
I really appreciate your response since you are really expertise in this major.
Your respnses are really important to me . Thank you in advance
