Many engineers dream of working on the tallest skyscrapers and longest spanning bridges. It is usually what sparks our initial interest of becoming a structural engineer in the first place. Whether it was the Golden Gate Bridge, Burj Khalifa or Taipei 101; we have all marveled at these amazing constructions. However, we should not forget that there is an equally important role that we, as engineers, should play. We are capable of creating clever solutions that can positively impact hundreds of thousands of people, and that is exactly what we are inviting you to work on.
