Software Tools for Structural Engineers

List of software tools every structural engineer must master to stay ahead in the profession.

Structural engineers, like most other professionals, cannot afford to ignore software tools. Here I wish to list the software tools that I think are important for a structural engineer. But some of them could be tools every engineer, not just a structural engineer, needs.
The above list is by no means complete. It is certain that there are software that are better than the ones listed above. Many are Free/Open Source software, but some are closed source and commercial and a few are web applications. It is merely a list based on personal taste (and bias!) and suited to a civil/structural engineer. Nevertheless, it will serve as a good starting point for someone planning to acquire additional skills. It would be great to read comments about this list so that it can be improved.
