Course Overview

Modular Certification Course
3+ months

This module will emphasise on design and construction of structural steel members, safety issues, member stability, plastic analysis and overall frame stability.

This module will also provide students with fundamental approaches in designing steel-concrete composite buildings in accordance with EC4. Students will acquire knowledge and skills to perform structural design for composite beams, slabs, columns and joints.

Who Should Attend

  • Civil Engineers, Site Engineers, Field Engineers, Project Engineers
  • Construction Managers
  • Candidates should possess a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering

What You Will Learn

Stability and Plastic Analysis
