According to the Texas Board of Professional Engineers, “There is no requirement in the Texas Engineering Practice Act to practice engineering only in the area that engineer was tested for during the Principles and Practice exam”. The bottom line? “…All engineers are required under the Act to practice only in their area(s) of competence…” It’s as simple as that.
Most practicing engineers consider structural engineering to be a sub-specialty of civil engineering practice. This is because civil and structural engineering overlap in many of their technical aspects. Still, structural engineering may be considered a stand alone profession in its own right.
Structural engineers commonly design buildings and large non-building structures. They also design machinery, medical equipment, vehicles, or any item where structural integrity affects the item’s function or safety. Structural engineers must make sure their designs are safe, serviceable, and perform as intended. Structural engineering is based upon scientific theory and practical experience. A structural engineering design often combines several simple structural elements to create complex structural systems.
Structural engineers are licensed or accredited by different regulatory bodies around the world. In Texas, the Board of Professional Engineers governs the practice of professional engineering. The Texas board considers all engineers to be professional engineers, regardless of whether they are Civil, Structural, Mechanical, or some other type of engineer. A licensed engineer may practice in the area for which they are qualified by education , training, and experience. A Texas professional engineer may choose to formally register up to two specialty practice areas with the board. However, this registration of up to two specialties is not mandatory and does not prevent an engineer from practicing in the multiple specialty areas for which they are qualified.
