The influence of the digital world is increasing its impact on those involved with the built environment, whilst our capability to exploit data to inform designs and push the boundaries of what is possible is at the heart of structural engineering.
As our ability to monitor, record, extract and extrapolate information on the performance of our structures continues to improve there is a growing need to better understand how best to use the information.
The use of big data and AI tools are emerging challenges for the industry. It is the ability to understand and manipulate information with computational tools which may transform the role of structural engineers.
An increasingly online world requires robust digital security to mitigate potential infiltration of digital systems and the harm that could be caused to our infrastructure, whether it be financial damage, intellectual property infringement, criminal activity or terrorism.

A chance to think outside the box about what can be done to make engineering an unending stream of goodness and indeed if it can be done.
Pre-order now. This guide explains why overdesign is so prevalent, its impact on material consumption and CO 2 emissions, and provides five key actions you can take now, to reduce the carbon your projects produce.
Do you want to save time and improve your daily workflow?
An online presentation about structural analysis, design and detailing using digital technology.
With the introduction of cognitive machines, the cybernetic processes that define structural engineering as a discipline are facing rapid change. However, by looking objectively at design as a cybernetic process, we can better understand the risks and rewards and find an optimum way for humans and machines to work in partnership, argues Paul Mullett.
Peter Debney explores Artificial Intelligence and how it can help structural engineers.
With the boom in technology in the construction industry, new specialisms within engineering are emerging. What's the cheapest way to improve your own digital skills? Ashley Kacha investigates...
Rob May explains how collaborative working practices can improve design outcomes. He also shares his thoughts on the evolution of parametric design and why it’s so valuable.
Hannah Lazenby explains why digital tools should be used to repurpose existing assets, and shares her experience of working on the Ken Rosewell Arena in Sydney.
