Become a Design and Technology structural engineer

This program is designed for individuals with a passion for Structural Engineering Design, ranging from intermediate to advanced skill levels. While having a basic understanding of reading blueprints and mapping is helpful, this course is structured to significantly enhance students' expertise in several critical areas. These areas encompass in-depth knowledge of structural analysis, calculations, and design principles. Throughout the course, students will become proficient in using essential engineering tools, such as AutoCAD, BIM in Revit Structure, MicroStation, and STAAD Pro for engineering drawing, calculation, and analysis. Additionally, they will develop their proficiency in project management software like Oracle Primavera, MS Project, and Sage Timberline.

Culminating in a practical structural design project, this program provides students with a hands-on opportunity to apply structural design principles using STAAD Pro. This experience not only reinforces their learning but also prepares them for real-world applications in the field of Structural Engineering Design.
