A series of two hour interactive webinars taking place over two days for three weeks, supported by individual study in between.

There will be a focus on understanding client needs, generating and iteratively developing  ideas, effective decision-making in design, and managing design teams.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Be able to characterise the design process and describe how each stage requires different skills and attitudes
  • Describe how conceptual design differs from detailed design and the consequences for how design is carried out
  • Use techniques for understanding the underlying need behind a client brief
  • Describe a model for idea generation and use this to lead a design team through the creative process
  • Understand the relationship between modelling, testing and the design brief, and use this to establish an effective iterative design process
  • Understand the nature of subjective decision-making in design
  • Describe strategies for building an effective design team

Intended for

This course is intended for structural engineers with ideally at least five years’ experience in practice, and ideally experience of managing other people as part of the design process.
