There is a growing demand for effective planning, analysis, design, construction and management of physical infrastructures such as bridges, buildings, transport systems, water supply systems and other essential and sustainable community infrastructure as well as demand for building services design. To enhance your knowledge in structural design as well as building services design and increase your employability, this minor developed to provide advanced knowledge and skills in structural engineering. Internationally renowned experts will be delivering weekly lectures, detailing the analysis and design of steel, steel-concrete composite and pre stressed concrete structures. There will also be a focus on concepts of structural dynamics and the Finite Element Method, reflecting on the latest research findings. This minor features design specific units aimed at providing practical experience in design of real world structural engineering projects. On successful completion of this minor, the students will be specialized in building structure and services design.
