What's the difference between a civil and structural engineer?

Just wondering, but are they the same thing?

Structural engineering is an aspect within the sphere of the broad catagory known as civil engineering. Most universities at the undergraduate level will will give you a diploma as a civil engineer upon graduation. It is at the graduate level that the distinction is made. Also when you go to your local authorities to obtain a license there is also a distinction with structural engineering being a higher hurdle to acheive. You would not hire a civil engineer who studied roadworks or water distribution systems etc. to do structural engineering work. So no, they are not the same.
