The modern tendency towards large steel-frame buildings means that structural steelwork design is becoming of ever-increasing importance in large building works and specialization in reinforced concrete design is now quite common.
This course deals with the most modern practice and provides really sound instruction in every branch of structural design. It is suitable alike for engineering and building workers. Both reinforced concrete composite design and structural steel work design are comprehensively covered from fundamental principles.
The program starts from first principles and it is required that persons with a mathematical background will have an added advantage to study the program. At least some exposure to high school level education is required to be able to successfully complete the program.
The usual application procedures must be observed. There are no other needs except that students should have access to a computer and they will be required to be computer literate at least capable to use a computer to be able to send and receive mail and to open attachment as well as using application software to open textbooks, prepare assignments. Where they do not have any Internet facilities, the usage of a computer is till compulsory but they can mail assignments or contact there agent to be able to study the program.
