Structural Engineering like Civil/Mechanical blended together?

  1. Apr 25, 2013 #1
    I am a civil engineering student and am about to choose a concentration. I really like both civil and mechanical engineering and it was hard to choose between them at the beginning of college. Therefore, I think structural engineering might be the best choice for me. I have been told that structural engineering incorporates both civil and mechanical engineering under one umbrella. I know if you are designing a bridge, there is obviously a lot of static analysis involved (civil engineering) and also a lot of dynamic vibration analysis (mechanical) when it comes to the seismic design aspects of it. What do you guys think?
