From the SEAINT website:
 

"STRUCTURAL ENGINEER:
Click to join our popular Email List ServerStructural Engineering is the science and art of designing and making, with economy and elegance, buildings, bridges, frameworks and other similar structures so that they can safely resist the forces to which they may be subjected."

Another definition usually attributed to James Amrhein:

"Structural Engineering is the art of molding materials we don't wholly understand, into shapes we can't fully analyze, so as to withstand forces we can't really assess, in such a way that the community at large has no reason to suspect the extent of our ignorance."
