Понравилось определение:

"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."

-- James E. Amrhein


Вот, кстати, забавная дискуссия на реддите: как должны выглядеть гипотетические лозунги разных специальностей. Например:

Archaeology: if you don't know what it is, it's probably ceremonial.
Astrophysics: "eh, i'm within an order of magnitude...."
Linguistics: "Well, it's not just about learning languages-- no-- okay, you know what, nevermind."
Linguistics: NO, I don't speak Mandarin.
Zoology: because you can't major in kittens
Creative Writing: Because job security is for pussies.
Biochemistry: Spend 4 Years Aspiring to Discover the Cure for Cancer, and the Rest of Your Life Manufacturing Shampoo.
Communications: "We'll teach you everything you need to know about convincing your friends that your degree is actually meaningful"
Psychology: good luck doing anything until you get your master's!
Nursing: Because Fuck Sleep
