Part of: Structural Engineering in Natural Hazards Mitigation


The transition from student to practicing structural engineer can be a very 'eye-opening' experience. From the classical right-wrong classroom solutions of well-defined indeterminate structures, a young engineer is thrust into the world of the practitioner where there is not always a vigorous solution to a problem. Judgment and experience must be combined with proper analysis to help determine the answer. How best to help prepare the student to make the transition is the subject of this paper.
