Structural engineers design the human living space to stand safely. Understanding the force of nature is essential so that architectural structures can stand safely against gravity and wind and earthquakes. Structural engineering is an application engineering based on an understanding of basic physics. There are many problems to solve when designing a structure. Sometimes engineers recognize and name problems themselves, and they lead answers based on engineering principles based on assumptions. However, there is not always a simple clear answer, nor does it have a single answer. In traditional education, we deal only with problems that have obvious answers, but when we encounter uncertain and unclear problems, we are sometimes embarrassed and unable to touch them. That's why engineers need creative judgement based on basic physics and engineering. Over the past century, architectural engineering and construction technologies have evolved.
