what should a structural engineer aim at ....?

i mean to say on what should the person focus on during his tenure in post graduation(M.tech)
how should a person develop his skill at design
which subjects are useful (from practical point of view)
please guide me.....
It depends on what one wants to do at work.
Structural Engineering covers a large territory, not just buildings.
Airport design, Chemical/Polymer manufacturing facility design (for support of plant and machinery), Bridges and elevated transport ways, Design for marine or other corrosive environment and so on.
In the West 3D printing is assuming importance for some applications.
In addition to a sound background in structural design it is important to acquire some skills with appropriate higher end CAD software.

i want to go in building construction/ detailing , so what should be practiced to become good in detailing
This is not my area. It interests me though. Here is a 400+ page thesis from Sweden which may give some information:
