STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING FUNDAMENTALS COURSE


Course exploring the fundamentals of modern structural engineering. Lifetime access to all modules and lessons including PDFs of presentation transcripts, technical design spreadsheets, technical design checklists, technical design how-to's, actual real structural drawings, technical short papers and books used by hundreds of practicing structural engineers. This is a crash course to gain knowledge from a group of practical engineers and theoreticians that have learned the techniques and best practices within the trade to conceptualize, scheme, analyze and design tall buildings. Drawing from these practical experiences, we have consolidated the wealth of information that is included in a field such as this so that you may find the shortest possible route to gaining the understanding of the art and science structural engineering and the tools necessary for your practice or your professional examinations.
