Structural Engineering Project
|Course code CIVL4521||Units 10||Level 4000||Faculty of Engineering and Built EnvironmentSchool of Engineering|
Provides a practical introduction to design techniques in structural engineering. The emphasis is on realistic design problems, such as the structural design of a new commercial or industrial building. Problems are set and supervised by practicing engineers in consultation with departmental staff and test most aspects of design.
Available in 2014
