Course content

Established in 1978, to provide training in the design, analysis and assessment of steel and composite (steel/concrete) structures, the course is designed to cover theoretical background and design considerations, and includes project work on structural forms of current industrial interest.

The course has evolved to incorporate Eurocodes, durability/repair of structural concrete and structural dynamics. It is ideally suited to practising engineers with relevant experience as well as recent graduates with an appropriate first degree.
