3D Engineers are responsible for designing and construction of structures to withstand stresses imposed through human use and environmental conditions. This means they need to ensure that buildings are stable and secure and do not rotate, deflect, vibrate excessively or collapse.
3D Engineers will typically work closely with architects and are usually heavily involved in choosing the correct and most appropriate materials such as timber, concrete, steel to best meet client requirements and building safety.
